TECE STATE SUPREME COURT.
THE NEGRO BOND QUESTION - AROUMENTS OF
MESSRS. M'OOWAN AND WH.YLEY.
[SPECIAL TELE QRAM TO THE NEWS J
COLUMBIA, April 22.-IQ the Supreme Court
to-day the case of Margaret M. Calhoun, et al,
ads. Floride Calhoun, involving the validity of
bonds given in payment for the purchase of
negroes, was resumad.
General S. McGowan concluded his powerful
epeech against the validity of the bonds.
He was followed by Mr. Whaley, whose argu
ment on the same side was unanimously pro?
nounced by the judges, and members of the
bar present, one of the ablest speeches yet
made on this question. It was listened to
with intense interest. Mr. Whaley took the
bold ground that the present Constitution of I
South Carolina, when adopted by Congress, be?
came an act of Congress to all intents and pur?
poses^ and that there is no liw of the land
whicjo, Toroids Congress to pass a law
violating the obligatio.) of contracts, though
such power is denied to the several
States of the Union. He. reviewed the
, history of the proceedings and acts of
Congress and of the State-Convention of 1868,
annulling all contracts where.the consideration
was for the purchase of slaves, and coatendfd
that the act of the Legislature forbidding such
oases to be entered on ibo dockets of the
courts of the State was in conformity with the
acts ot Congress, on the subject and with the
State Constitution ol' 18G8. Thc jurisdiction of
this court was, therefoie, limited to a general
jurisdiction, as the Supreme Couic of tho la*9d,
to see that the organic hiw of the land is
carried out and enforced. He contended
that tbS question, "What is the constitution
of a State?" was a political question, not one
for judicial determination, and rested with
Congress, which ?as bound to see whether the
constitution established a republiaan form of
Messrs. Noble and Thompson will be heard
on the opposite side tomorrow, and General
McGowan will close in reply. The arguments
in the case have been phonogriphically report?
ed, and will, it is said, bo published in full.
THE ENGLISH PRESS ON THE CUBAN QUESTION.
LONDON, April 22?-In commenting on the
Cuba question, the Telegraph says: "Eng?
land is unbiassed, but English inters ts are

RANK REBLLLIOK.-The State Journal, tho
Radical organ in Richmond, Va., reports the
following startling occurrence :
The Flag Bissed in a Bichmond Theatre.
An accident occurred last night at the Rich?
mond Theatre, during the performance of the
"Forty Thieves," which proves beyond perad?
venture of a doubt that tbe people of Rich?
mond are " thoroughly reconstructed and
Americanized.'' One of" the actors, during a
medley son? made np of nursery rhymes, and
odds and ends, happened to sing, when it came
to bi3 torn,
" Ibe Star-spangled Banner, long may it wave."
Ere be had completed the line, there were
hisses from different parts of the house;
whereupon Bishop caught np the refrain from
his brother actor and added,
.'O'er Afric'8 burning sands."
which was received with the most deafening
applause from all parts of the bouse, long con
tinned and enthusiastic. It waa encortdf aed
the same eoene re-enacted. A number of
rmy officers present (all honor to them) loft
the house, to manifest their indignation at
this insult offered to their country's flag. The
few "hisses"' offered would not have amounted
to anything; but when the ribald jest, at the
expense of the dag, received such a tremen?
dous outburst of exultant delight, there waa
no mistaking the true sentiment of tho vast
majority of the house.
Had the officers, who ti their honor left the
the theatre, any objections to the Star-span?

slightest regard to the Civil Rights bill. There
is not a single hotel iii New York, except, per?

eat and sleep. Some weeks ano the editor of
the Anti-Slavery Standard applied by letter to

British Lion-"Canada or Fight" I
IQ the United Siates Senate, on Monday, S
ator Chandler, of Michigan, offersd a rear,
tion that President Grant swap off the Ala
ma claims for tho whole of tho British No
American Provinces, and that ho be dir cet CL
open negotiations on that basis. In sup pori
thia patent plan tho senator made a wild, Ic
harangue, of which the key-note was Can:
or fight. Incidentally he had read ail his 1
mer mouthinga on the bloody British qu
tion, with which he has emptied tho Sen
and filled the Globe during all the years sit
1861. His resolution reads as follows :
Resolved, That in the judgment of -the S<
ate, the trite solution ol' all controversies 1
tween Great Britain and tho United States v
be f jund in a surrender of all the British Pc
sosL'ions in North America to the people of t
United States, and that the President be and
hereby requested to open negotiations aa so
as practicable for a rcttlement of all mal tera
dispute upon that basis.
SPEECH OF SENATOR CHANDLER.
Mr. Chandler, in his Bpeecb in support of ti
resolution, said that he thought it was time \
should say precisely what we mean. There w'
no occasion longer to delay the declaration. Tl
senator from Massachusetts (Mr. Sumner) tl
other day mado a speech, from winch the i
junction of secrecy had been removed, ar
which had now become public, showing our r
lations with Great Britain. He congratulate
the S?cate aiytthe country upon the advanc
which tho senator from Massachusetts ha
made upon this question. Seven years ago, i
the year 1862, ho (Mr. Chandler) had had oca
sion many times to allude to this very subjei
before the people of his own State and ot
of it, and^o assert tbat every depredation o
American citizens ought and should bo paid ft
by the government of Great Britain. In 186
before General Sherman had reached tho sci
and before tho capture of Savannah, ho r flore
a certain resolution in this chamber, which wo
loaf. He had read at the time a dispatch fror
the newspapers, dated Toronto, December 1!
1864, that thc St. Albans' raiders had been dis
^barged for want of a jurisdiction. The Cant
dian authorities made up their minds to prc
tect these raiders, who, under the patronag
of Jeff. Davis, carno within our borders to burn
to murder and destroy, and then return to tb
British provinces. Alarm prevailed along tb
frontier, and in his own city (Detroit) marv c
the citizens for a long time slept on their arms
In view of all the facta then elaborately state J
and which Mr. Chandler nov,- read from tb
Congressional Globe, he offered a proambli
setting forth that raids had been organized it
Canada and Nova Scotia, newly enlisted tn tbi
British provinces by persons claiming to bole
commissions from the rebel government ol tin
south.for the purpose of robbing and murderra:
peaceable citizens, burning cities and villages
piratically capturing and burning riorchant't
v?asela, and plundering unarmed citizens o:
the United States: and further, that the people
of the British provinces seem disposed to pro
lect those Uri ti sh thieves; and this preamble
was followed by a resolution that tho Commit?
tee on Military Affairs inquire into the expe?
diency of immediately onlisting an army corps
to watch and dei end our shores from all hos?
tile demonstrations. Ho at that timo askod
thc conaidoration of thc resolution, but Mr.
Reverdy Johnson objected. In a subsequent
speech ho explained what ho meant, namely,
tbat theubaso of the rebellion was in thu Cana?
das. A steamboat was seized at tho mouth of
the Detroit River, within twelvo miles of the
city, and oven a piano taken out of it. These
pirates .vere from and protected by tho Cana?
das. Tho poop.'o of Detroit lay on their arras
clay and pigUt to protect (ho eitizons from np
prell eu Ut U: tOBUntntm w IBO - nwufmiw ?tm
murderers and incendiaries. No punishment
was even it.flicted upon any of those criminals
by tho Canadian Governsiobt. That govern?
ment, however, did pay for tho robbery of tho
Bank of St. Albans, but ibero was uo apology, no
compromiso; no friendly act to wipo out ibo
greatest outrages ever perpetrated. Ho then
offered another preamble, act ting forth tbe
agency of the British Government and of prom?
inent subjects of that country in aiding the re?
bellion, and concluding with a resolution that
the Secretary of State be instructed immediate?
ly to make out a list of even-ship and cargo
destroyed by rebel pirates at a fair valuation,
with a rate of interost of six per cont, from the
time of capture to tho date of the presentation
of tho claim, and demand payment from tho
Britiah Government in full for all ships and
cargoes thus destroyed. He moved that the
proposition be referred to tho Committee on
Commerce. The president pro tom. said that
it required unanimous consent, and having
asked whether there was any objection, Mr.
Reverdy Johnson said he objected. Mr.
Chandler said that before offering thia resolu?
tion he had an interview with General Grant,
who waa at thu time at tho front, and said to
him. "We have six hundred ships of war in
commission, armed and provisioned, and
ready for action, with 51 OOO sailors, and
never before now so well prepared to
demand compensation or reparation from
England at the eau n o n'a mouth." Ho
asked General Grant if thc aspect of war
should rise in the East, how long it would take
him to capture Savannah, charleston and Wil?
mington ? General Grant replied that it was
better at that time the rebels should furnish
the garrisons because there was no further
use for thc nt vv. He said he could capture
these forts in thirty days. At that time five or
six hundred armed 'ships could be concentra?
ted at any given point on the Atlantic coast.
Mr. Chandler could not make thia etatement
when he offered the resolution. He meant bu?
siness when he did so. Ho meant that the
claims against Great Britain should bc prompt?
ly paid in full, and if not paid, the worst for
Groat Britain. The resolution was afterwards
referred to the Committee on Foreign Rela?
tion s, and 8.ept the sleep that kuows no wa?
king. He supposed that tho chairman of that
committee had the resolution in his pocket.
He thought the Committoe on Foreign Rela?
tions, aa well as the country, had made pro?
gress np to his time, lhat was m tho summer
of 1864.- All remembered that General
Grant, in the spnug of 1865, had advanced
with his armv into Virginia, when tho rebel?
lion collapsed, and this Uft our army and
navy free to act, but the time to demand
compensation at tho cannon's mouth had
passed. On the 15th of January, 1866, he
followed up thia subject with another resolu?
tion. He offered it aa a peace niiuaure. He de
aired Great Britain to repudiate tho acts of her
piratical subjects. If Great Britain should decide
that the torch should settle the questions at
issue.be was willing lo a ce pt that mode of
settlement. The ?esolution was referred to
tho Committee ou Foreign Relations, which
mado no report; but aa the Secretaiy of State
did press the business contemplated by the
resolution, and formally made a demand on
Great Britain, he (Mr. Chandler) inferred that
the Committee on Foieign Relations nad re?
ceived assurances from the Secretary of State
that no further legislative action was required
at that time, and the chairman of the commit?
tee assured him that such was the case. The
bill had been offered and refused, and further
negotiations declined. Great Britain had even
repudiated our claims, and insolently .nformod
our government that fi rtber negotiation waa
offensive to her. Ho rend from ollicial
documenta to show thia fact, and that
uo good could follow frum the prolongation
ot ihe controversy. In this he agreed wit Ii
tho .british Minister. Noa? we were informed
that no part of iho'uegotiatiou is open; that
negotiation ia closed. At that timo he said
that Great Britain should pay thc bill ol dam?
ages, otherwise we should hav. non-mtcr
coor8e with her. and with thia visw he offered
a preamble coucluding with a r?solution that
the Presidout bo requested io withdraw our
LU i ?.uter at the Court ot St. James, aud tu
issue a proclamation of non-intercourse, to
take effect immediately after the proclamation
shall be issuid. Mr. Dixon (of Connecticut;
obiecled to tho cons'deration of the resolution,
and so it was laid over, lt waa his (Mr. Cuaud
lerV) imures-ion thcu and was now, that if
this resolution bud been passed unanimously,
tho Alabama and other similar claims would
have be Jil paid .vi hin thirty dins irom its
passage. Every resolution he had offered had
been in the interest ot peace. Subsequently he
offered a resolution that the Committee ou
Foreign Affairs bo directed to inquire into tho
expediency of repealing our proscut neu?
trality laws. I'ho obj c iou of Mr. Cow?
an earned it over. So his neutrality
icsolutioii waa killeo by a single objection.
If wo had repealed our neutrality laws,
tho sot would liuvohad a o jnservativo i ?laei.c..:
upon Groat Britain. Every th tig luwng failed
in tbe way of peaceful propositions, in Novem?
ber, 1867, he offered a resolution declaring our
del ermi nation to maintain strict neutrality
between Great Britain and Abyssinia, guaran?
teeing to tbe flags of both belligerents equal
privileges on land and water. This resolution
was an exact copy of the declaration of Great
Britain proclaimed on the 14th of May, 1861,
simply changing the names of the countries to
this resolution. Objection was interposed by
Mr. Sumner, who thought it were better the
resolution should lie on the table. It was laid
on the table, bnt a few days afterwards called
up. At the iequest of Mr. Chandler, the clerk
read tbe remarks ho made on that occasion, in
tho course ot which he said he was for giving
G eat Britain a dose of ber owi; medicine, and
not a homoeopathic one. He repeated, every
one of the proposition* to which he had ad?
verted was in tbs interest ot peace, and the
resolution which he had offered to-day afforded
the only peaceful solution ol our difficulties.
Why should we agree on negotiation? We have
had" treaty after treaty, and rejected them.
This leads to irritation. He uttered the same
sentiments he did now twoyears and a half ago.
He would havj required a mortgage fir the
amount due ; tbe mortgage was recorded, and
the security good. He believed we bad now put
this matter on a proper basis. If Great Bi i tai a
should meet us in a friendly spirit, ack : owl
edge her wrong, and cede all her interest in
tbe Canadas in settlement of these claims, wo
have perpetual peace with Great BritaiD; but if
abe does not, we must conquer peace. We can?
not afford to have an enemy's base eo near to
us. It is a national necessity that we should
tia/e the British Possessions. He hoped such
a negotiation would be opened, and that it
will be a peaceful one ; but if it should not be,
md England insists on war, then let the war
be short, sharp, and decisive. If war should
:ome, ho would say now that the sixty thousand
reteran soldiers of Michigan would take tbe
jontract to capture tbo Canadas in thirty days
without a man or gun from any other State.
But there will be no war. Great Britain
loes not desiro war with ns. When
j ur ministers abroad proclaimed this govern?
ment overthrown, because they were nearly all
n tho interest of scession, it was wonderful
.bat it was thought so abroad. France thought
ibat it was a good time to establish an empire
)n this continent; Great Britain also sought to
nako up an empire from tbe late United State?
jlreat Britain and France wero in accord witb
.he rebellion. If the United States had been
jvcrthrown tbe empire woull have been es
ablished; bat the United States were notover
;hrown, and thorefore the rebellion was not est?
ablished. Wbon the Emperor Napoleon was
nformed that tho occupation of Mexico would
ead to war with over one million of men, he
withdrew his army fr.-.m Mexico. He had
itaked the cause of tho empire on the success
>f the rebellion. Great . Bri a in staked her em?
pire on the sea. She knew the rebellion must
inccecd, or she must abandon tho continent.
!n conclusion Mr. Chandler expressed the hope
hat the resolution would be passed.
Mr. Sumner moved that the resolution bc re
erf ;d to the Committee on Foreign Relations,
md it-was so referred.

Tho Darlington Democrat says : "During
.ast week we had very cold weather for
this season, and some frost. Planting
has been backward in consequence, abd
tho gardens very much injured. We now
have mil I, warm woather, with little prospect
3f any more cold or frost. There has been very
little rain this month, and the ground needs a
sprinklo very much. With a good start now,

not be much lessened by the lateness of the
An indignation meeting was held at TimA
monsvillo, on the 11th inst., on account of the
mairiage on the previous dav, by H. D. Cook,
(white) of Jim Gour (black as tho ace of
spades) to Bet Hancock (white.) Rev. John
M. Timmona was called to the chair, and Jas.
N. Garner requested to act as secretary. Tho
:hairman explained tho object of the meeting
to be to give expression on a recent m arri aye
af a negro to a white woman by a white magis
Irato of this place. The meeting was address
sd by Dr. Dyrd, Captain Johnson and others,
ill strongly opposing the above marriage After?
wards the following resolutions wero adopted :
Resolved, That wc look upon tho mamase of
Bet Hancock (white) to Jim Gour (black) as
:onti?ry to the laws of God and civil society,
tod wo take this method to express our indig?
nation not only in this case but tn all like cuse-1,
iud will usc our best efforts to prevent such a
hscraceful occurrence in this community
icain. Resolved, That we censure tho niauia
irato (white) who married them, and re urn
I hanks to Stephen Gett (colored) for refuging
lo marry the above party.
THE RAILEOAD TO GOUUDIN'S.- WO have been
loudly permitted to examino a letter written
by MV. Geoigo W. Earle, the accomplished
engineer-ic-cbief ot the survey made, previous
io tho war. ol the proposed South Csxoliiji
Central. This letter contains cncour.igh g
statements in regard to the character of co :u
try and probable cost ot grading said road
from this point to Gourdin's. That part ol tho
country, he says, is "so level thnt it would
scarcely matter where the road was localed.
With thc exception ot a li'tle grading ah mt
tho Town of Manning, and tho trcsiliug of ibe
two swamps .-ear there, (which I do not think
would require more than haifa mile toguth r.)
the mero clearing, grubbing aod ditching the
road-red, woulu bc needed to receivo thu cros.
ties and iron. I should Dit. think thc gr..dii g
ought to cost more than $1000 per mile, on au
average." lt has been further estimated linn
thc forty miles irom this point io Gourdiii'u
may be made ready io receive thc iron tor tho
Mini ot $100.000. This is as much, lt is sup?
posed, as the people would bo required lo do.
TIK- iron, it is siipp^soj, would cost about
S223 000, to raise which, it is intimated, the
Northeastern Biilroad would endorse tbo bonus

-Barney Aaron has itsned a sweeping chal?

-Mr. A. T. Stewart's property on Broadway
alone is worth about $5,000,000. Mr. W. B.
Astor's real estate on Broadway is worth about
$3,000.000. Tho Lonllard estate has $8,000,000
invested in that thoroughfare.
-A report was lately circulated in London
that MisB Braddon had become insane. It was
quickly contradicted, the only foundation for
the story being that the lady is engaged on a
new story, which will probably BeJJ better on
account of the erroneous rumor.
-Miss Ada L. Webb, the actress, one of the

-Artemus Ward's Lecture is about lo be
published simultaneously in New York and

to represent, by tho arrangement of spaces,

-A well known Washington beau, rejoicing
aa every one aupposei in the undimmed lustre
of natural cheoelure, bas been brought to grief
by the refusal of tho Episcopal Bishop of No w
Jersey to lay confirming bands on his aristo?
cratic caput. It seems the bishop discovered,
in Bomo way or other, that the brilliant beau
was not altogether a work of nature, and par?
ticularly the hair on his hoad, which was
found to bo a gorgeous wig. According to tho
rules of the episcopal unuron a bishop cannot
lay his hands on an artificial headpiece. It
must bo all natural "thc capillary substance,"
or ho cannot rightfully perform the confirma?
tion. The worst part ot tho story is that the
aforesaid boau waa engaged to bs married to a
young and beautiful lady, who, inconsequence
of the Episcopal voto on wigs, now refuses to
become tho wedded bride. What a calamity
for the beau t At one blow he loses bis repu?
tation and his lady love
-The London papera aro highly pleased
with Mr. Motley's appointment to the English
mission. The Times says: "His reputation
as a distinguished man of letters, no leas than
his diplomatic position, will insure bim a
hearty welcome in this cenntry; nor is there
any type of minister whom we would receive
more gladly than tbo historian and the scholar.
Mr. Motley, however, would be the first to admit
that in him we must recognize one who has
decided opinions on tho matters in dispute be?
tween us and the Americans. Whatever may
bo bia social or his historical prepossession, be
is, as far aa actual politics are concerned, a
thorough repr?sentative of the Northern Re?
publicanism. Wo may expect to find in Mr.
Motley an earnest andnnoomproming support?
er of the opinions which aro said to be domi?
nant among his countrymen." "Few Ameri?
cans are so well known," says the Daily News,
"and none has warmer personal* friends among
our literary mou." The Telegraph dees not
assume to express any opinion regarding Mr.
Motley's diplomatic abilities; "but, during his
lenure-of-office, Americana will assuredly have
no cause to complain that their c rontry ia not
represented worthily. To high character, dis?
tinguished manners, and large experience of
foreign lands, Mr. Motley adds a literary repu?
tation of tho first order."

tbat I announce to my friends and patrons that dr*
cumstances beyond my control compelled me to dis?
continue my business at the old stand of N. M. POR?
ERS k Co., No. 230 Shut-street. In making this
announcement I beg to tender my sincero thanks
for their liberal patronage and support, and trust
that in my new position they will extend the same
liberality. My limited capital, together with losses
of the past three years, impaijea my credit to euch
an extent that it was difficult to keep up a supply of
goods without paying exorbitant prices, and I was
fast losing ruy health, business and friends. Io this
extremity I appealed to Messrs. WM S. CORWIN k
CO., and the liberality which so characterize? that
firm was at once extended to nu, and I am now en?
abled to offer better Inducements. Tbeir extensive
capital and experience permits them to offe r a finer
class of goods at about tho prices I had to pay, par?
ticularly in Teas, Champagnes, Clarets, Brandies,
kc The combined t-flor'a of myself and former
partner, Mr. JAMES S. MARTIN, will bo to please
you, and wo respectfully solicit a continuance ot
your patronage; and we pledge ourselves to give oar
personal and prompt atteniion to such. Again
