-ADJOURNMENT OF THE EBNATS. . '
WASHLNGTCV, April 23.-Senator Sprague's
?words, which offended Abbott, were: "Mr.
President, in answer to the tkade of the sena?
tor from Novada and thc senator from North
Carolina, I am reminded of a little illustration.
Io my travels from the centre here into the
rural districts through the woods and farms of

grel pnupy-dog. Tire little dog moved on rn?
with rapidity from behind, bit at my heels, and
then frightened at his temerity, ran howling
away, followed by his larger companion. The
Senate will observe that the mongrel whining
puppy, en :ouraged by the mastiff and embold?
ened to make the attack from the shadow of
his backer, ran rapidly away alarmed at his
temerity, whilst the overgrown cur followed
after, with ears flapped and tail between his
legs, to a place of safety beside his menaced
During yesterday evening Abbott threaten?
ed to horsewhip Sprague unloss he retractod.
In the Senate last night, Abbott said: "When
I arose in the executive session some timo ago
to asl: that the doors be opened, I said that I
did not intend to utter anything unbecoming
this floor. What I did intend to do was to ask
the senator from Rhode Island if he intended
to apply the term puppy to me as is implied in
the connection of th.it language. If he did
intend to apply it to mo, my purpose was ti
ask him for a retraction as fall as the implica?
tion of the language, and, if he refused that
retraction, my intention was to ask for satis?
faction ont of this chamber. I now, sir, give
notice, inasmuch as the senator has skulked
out of the chamber, that I intend to have
satisfaction outside of the chamber."
Sumner called Abbott to order, aol after
much confusion he was allowed to say in ex?
planation : "I will state that I am not a duellist.
I wa^-not educated as a duellist, and I did not
mean that sort of a thine; but I meant to say
that the senator from Rhode Island must make
a retractioj as broad as the assertion (order 1)
and that I shall have that satisfaction outside
of this chamber in some way.
There was a false report that Sprague left
town early this morning, and that Abbott was
absent from his usual haunts; but it is now
known that Sprague has been at home all thc
morning, and has not heard from Abbott.

FROM THE STATE CAPITAL.
A Sketch of thc Negro Bond Case-Points
of General McGowan's Argument,
[FROM OCR OWN CORRESPONDEXT.J
COLUMBIA, April 22.-The Suoremo Court baa
been much interested in bearing tho case of
Margarito M. Calhonu, Duff G. Calhoun et al,
ads. Florido Calhoun and Thomas G. Clemp
sou, adr.-bill for foreclosure of mortgage.
McGowan and Whaloy for appellants; Noble
and Thomson for appellees. The farm known
ab Fork Hill, tho homo place of John C. Cal?
houn, with fifty uegroes and other personal
property, was Bold by hi8 witlow, Mrs. M. M.
Calhoun, and daughter, to her son, A. P. Cal?
houn, in 1851, for $19,000, with nf teen years
allowed for payment, and the whole property
was covered by a mortgage. A. P. Calhoun
died shortly after intestate, and the appellants
in the case were his heirs. None of the
debt was paid up to 1805, when a bill was filed
to foreclose the mortgage, th? validity ef
which was discussed in court before Chancel?
lor W. D. Johnson, who decreed in favor of
the appellees; but an appeal was obtained, and
the case is now before the Supreme Court.
The main point a', issue is the validity of tbe
oe ntnet for tho fifty slaves, and it is certainly
JL case of momentous interest. The following
are brief heads of the argument of General S.
McGowan, without quoting the host of authori?
ties or going into tho argument at large, which
was not based on mere technicalities, but on
the spirit and broad intent of the law:
L ID every sale of slaves for full value, the
seller warranted the title of the slaves against
all dulcets, known and uuknown, and tho sub?
sequent abrogation by the government of the
laws establishing slavery, was a breach of that
covenant of warranty.
2. The loss of slaves by emancipation
amounts to a failure of consideration, and
where it occurrod whilst coutracts for slaves
wer3 executory, the court will not enforce thom,
because the thing purchased was not enjoyed.
8. Contracte for sjaves?are now made not only
void but criminal, and the local provisions
which made slavery legal and gave validity to
tbesc contracts being abrogated, the courts
will not now enforce them.
4. Bach contracts will not be enforced here,
because slavery is now against the policy of the
realm, and it is os much tbe duty of courts
to enforce the policy as the positive enactments
of the Bt&t?.
5. The Constitution of thc State of South
Carolina explicitly declares such contracts
"null and void and of no effect."
6. The 4th section of die Fourteenth Amend?
ment of the Constitution of the United States
declares all claims for the emancipation of
slaves "shall bo held illegal and void."
Mr. Wm. Whaley was heard to-day on the
same side. His main points have been sent

THE FHONIX AND GOVERNOR
SCOTT'S CENSUS APPOINTMENTS.
[?From the Anderson Intelligencer.]
Tbe Columbia Pheonix of Tuesday publishes
i hst of appointments made by Governor Scott
jf person? selected to talo thc census of each I
jouncy in the State, and in connection there?
with makes usu of th? followu,1
'The appointments will bo prencrally approved,
ind we hope that in thc discharge of their du?
nes these officials will meet with every facility
s hi ch can be afforded by the citizens of our
State." Now, when it is declared that one
[hird of the persons named are negroes, and
:he majority of them totally unqualified for the
position, the statement ot the Pheonix will be re?
ceived with surprise and indignation. Publish?
ed at the capital of the State, and with facilities
to obtain information not excelled by another
journal within its borders, the Pheonix makes
the grandest mistake in presuming that such
appointments will be "generally approved."
8o far from this being the case, we incline to
the opinion that they wdl be gonorally con?
demned. Heretofore, newspapers at the capi?
tel have been looked upon aa the exponents ot
public sentiment throughout the State, but it
ought to bo distinctly understood that, in this
instance, there is a lamentable failure to ap?
preciate public eentiment, mach less to give
tone and direction to public opinion. Such
appointments will not be "generally approved,"
now or hereafter, for the principle is wrong to
confer office upon incompetent and unworthy
persona, of whatever race or color.
We are not astonished by the coarse Gover?
nor Soott hos panned in making these appoint?
ments. He is cheek by jowl with the negroes,
and it re-elected will owe his second elevation
to their support. His appointment for this
conntyis against the wishes of his own party,
so far as we can learn, and we understand that
a petition waa circulating among the respecta?
ble colored people on yesterday, asking Gover?
nor Scott to reconsider tho matter. There
were other applications before him, wo have
been assured, and among them the name of
T. J. Webb, who is entirely competent to fill
the place, and possesses every qualification to
meet the requirements of the Republican
party, including loyalty itself. Besides, he was
recommended by numerous citizens of both ,
parties. Why wero hts claims ignored, and tbe
office fil'ed by a colored man not at all quali?
fied ? But, then, the Phceaix says such ap?
pointments will bo "generally approved." Et

SCOTT_THE CHARLESTON NEWS fearlessly ex?
poses the high handed panie which tlio so
called Governor ot South Carolina has been
practicing in the aiming of negroes. Tnis
great calumniator of the good people of South
Carolina, not content with an attempt to bring
abont a suspension of the writ of habeas cor?

termined to arm and array the negroes against
tho whites, on pretence of organizing the mili?

which he was istrumental in a great measure
in cansing to '.? passed. This attempt to bully

A dispatch from Washington, in the Bostc
Advertiser of the 19th instant, says :
Dispatches from Savannah lead tho fricuc
of the Cubm revolution here to believe tht
General J. B. Stecdman has made a succcssft
landing in Cuba with a picked I oreo o 'mei
The expedition bas been in preparation for
number of months. General Stecdman him
self spent two weeks in Havana, and duriu
the latter part of the time was so far under ai
rest as to bo ordered quietly by tho Captair
General to report to him da ily. The first rer
dozvons of bis party was on one of tho island
near New Orleans. When Admiral Hoff receiv
ed his first orders the headquarters of tb
expedition were changed to a point on the Plot
ida coast. A blookade-runner, captured fror
tho rebels in the late wai, was obtained, am
the belief is that near ono thousand men, wei
supplied with arms and thoroughly accustom ei
to their use, have made a landing on the Cuba:
The New York Herald says :
For several weeks the Cubans in (his citj
have been quietly but assiduously workini
to aid their brother revolutionists in tin
field by the shipment of men, money and
mnnitiocs to them. Volunteering is going oi
very rapidly, but very quietly, ant
the recruits are promptly forwarded in smal
detachments to Cuba. Very recently a ful
battery of field artillery, completely oquippec
and manned, was dispatched, and information
has been received of its safo arrival.
A Washington telegram, of the 21st inst., sa.ve
Dispatches bavo been received hore fron
Admiral Hoff, commanding tho Gulf squadron
in which be states that, as far as ho has beor
able to ascertain, no troops or munitions ol
war of any account havo been landed on tht
Island of Cuba. He also stales that ho ha:
faiied to discover that any more have departed
from the shores of the United States.
It is also stated that tho Spanish minister
herc u of thc opinion that in thc case of thc
schooner Man-Powell, tho Spanish authorities
in Cuba will refer the demands of tho United
States Government to the home government
in Spain before any action will be taken in the
TbcNew York Herald says:
Secretory Fish on Tuesday waa called upon
by Senor "Roberts, tho Spanish Minister, who
demanded that a proclamation discouraging
filibustering expeditious trom sai lin cr to Cuba
should be issued by the President. The Sec
rotary promptly declined to do anything of tho
sort, and said that as there was a revolutionary
organization in arms in Cuba, formed by tho
native Cubans under their own provisional
government, he could see no good reason to
hinder the departure o? any persons irom this
country who may choose* to take up arms in
their service. Minister Roberts, it is said,
withdrew vory much surprised, and afterwards
submitted the same demand in writing.
In regard to the Mary Lowell affair, Secretary
Fish has concluded that the Dritish govern?
ment is liable to us for permitting her to be
captured in British waters, and bo bas there?
fore made representations to that effect to the
British minister. As for the Lizzie Majors,
however, several days ago he demanded full
reparation and indemnity from the Spanish
government through Senor Roberts, wbo con?
ceded the Justness of the claims, and guaran?
teed that Spain would make satisfactory repa?
ration. He promised to lay the matter before
his home government immediately, but yester?
day he informed the Secretary that lie had not
heard from the eovemment since. The Secre?
tary then diplomatically informed him that
war would ensue if an answer was not forth?
A Review of thc Progresa of the Revo?
It ii now six months since Carlos Manuel
C?spedes at Yara, in the Eastern Department
of Cuba, began the revolution which now oc?
cupies the attention of the world. Then no
ono had faith in the Cubans. Tho earnestness
of their purpose, their courage, their perse?
verance, their fighting qualities were doubted.
Now they bave established themselves firmly
in the good opinion of mankind.
The Spaniards have made three distinct
movements for the suppression of this revolt.
The first was in thc Easiern Department under
Yal m seda. He was sent out from Havana to
get possession of Bayamo, then tho revolution?
ary headquarter?. After immense difficulties
and heavy lesses, he arrived at his destina?
tion, with his decimated troops worn out with
skirmishes, which had never ceased along their
whole line of march. But the little town ho
was sent to subdue was burned by its poople
before he got there, and its occupation availed
nothing toward tho subjugation of the Cubans.
On the contrary, he immediately found him?
self shut up there, surrounded by a watchful
enemy, whom he could not bring to action,
but who never ceased to pick off his outposts,
harass his foraging parties, and capture bis
convoys. He is still at Bayamo. and keeps
bodice of troops at Jibara, Holguin, and Jigu
ani ; but he is just as far from controlling the
department as he was the day he landed at
Nuevitas and began his march southward.
The next campaign was that of Lesea, who
marched from Guanaia to reUeve Puerto Prin?
cipe in the Central Depar aaent, where the
Spanish gsm'son was. besieged by the insur?
ants under Quesada. Thc new leader brought
to tho work a more powerful forco than had
previously been collected by tho government,
and he set out with loud declarations of his
purpose to exterminate the rebels wherever he
should meet them. The result waa identical with
that which had come upon Valmaseda. Ho was
assailed by invisible enemies at every step,
and after a long, arduous, and circuitous ad?
vance, in which he nowhere got a chance fairly
to strike his foe, he entered Puerto Principe,
having lo-t 31 officers and 189 soldiers killed,
aud more than 400 wounded, bestdostwo-thirds
ol thc convoy of ammunition and provisions,
and all the money that ho lind taken with him.
Since then he. too, has been shut up in tho
place he came to relievo, worBO off and in
greater danger than his predecessor.
The third aud last of these great operations
consisted of a concentric movement ot three
co'umas directed upon Siguanea, IQ the south?
western part of thc Central Department. Ouo
column of 2000 men, under General Escalante,
marched ft om Alvarez, in tbe District of Sigua;
one of 1000. under Bucota, from Villa Clara;
and the third ol 1000, under Letona, proceeded
northward from Trinidad. These columna met
willi a similar experience. They found no or?
ganized bodies ol rebids in their way. bu" they
were annoyed by partisan attacks "which they
'could neither prevent nor punish. Of the
losses of Escalante and Baceta wo have no m
foiniation; but those of Letona amounted to
three hundred, nearly onc-i hud ol' his whole
force. But the worst of it for thc Spaniards is,
that they gained nothing whatever by the un?
dertaking. Il they could have b'ongbt the in?
surgents to battle and killed or captured them,
it would have been something to counterbal?
ance their losses. But au cueniy who cannot
bc seen or fired at. and who not only finis at
you trout every thicket, and surprises you
jfrom every mountain path and plantation road,
I but holds the country after you have passed
through it, is a very inconvenient enemy indeed.
This third movement doubtless ends tbe
active efforts of tbe Spaniard? for the present
seison. There nas a report of a battle near
[ Remedios, but it is doubtless an exaggeration.
The Cubans have not fought a regular battle,
! and do not mean to. The rains which are now
be ginning, and which will Inst through the
next three months, will render tho country
impracticable for the Spaniards. Every road
will become a quagmire, and only the natives
can get about at all. The Spaniards will there?
fore hare to withdraw. Even their ,- arrisons
at such places as Bayamo and Puerto Principe,
will doubtless be moved to the Bea coast from
the impossibility of supporting them inland.
Then tho yellow lever will begin its work, and
tbe small Spanish army cannot fail to bo great?
ly weakened by this cause in the course of the
summer. Still, we may aa well understand
that they will not give up tho contest for that
reason. They are exceedingly pertinocioua,
and will fight for years after all hope of suc?
cess is abandoned.
Letter from an Influential Coban-Thc
Island Drenched with Blood--Tbe .Mob
Looking Forward to the Day ot Gen?
The New York Sun publipb.es the following
HAVANA, April KL- I take pleasure in writing
these lines to the good brother, since, thank
God, I may count myself yet among the living,
even if only half alive. My principal object is
to press upon you the oecossity of untiring
perseverance for tbe prompt remittance to us
of aid in arms and war material, because if
these do not reach us very quickly, and iu abun?
dance, we shall perish all. Against everything
Cuban there exists an implacable hatred, and
there is a thirst for blood and extermination.
MC Ii DE US OF UNPARALLELED ATBOCTTr.
Assassinations multiply daily; there is not
thc least personal security, and we are all
doomed to death. You have probably beard
already of the assassinations perpetrated in
Macuriges by the commander of volunteers,
Durante; those at Col?n, Palmillas and other
places by thc sadly distinguished Chapelgor
ris; that" at Cardenas by Don Felipe Pelayo,
upon tho person ot Don Geronimo Valladares,
after piercing him with ten bullets only tor the
pleasure of killing him, and a mulatto, and
robbing them of all the objects of value they
bad. His cjrpso was dragged to the barracks,
and there his breast was twice pierced with
the bayonet. In Bemba they killed Don Anto?
nio Cadiz, Don Lorcta Inda, and many otheis
with whose names lam not acquainted.
THE ASSASSINATION OF YOUNO OLIVA.
I c innot omit mentioning here the virtuous
and industrious young man Don Nicolas Oliva, ?
murdered in Bemba in the most cowardly and
barbarous manner. At four o'clock in tho
morning ho left his home, leaving his old
mother. Iiis wife and two children, one of these
a child twenty days old. de went out to his
work to earn the bread for those beings whose
existence relied entirely upon the work ot his
bands. At about six squares from his house
ho was murdered, having his back pierced with
bayonets, and ho was also robbed in tho name
of sacred love for Spain. It saddens the soul
to hear of such shocking deeds, too numerous
to relate. It is unnecessary to tell yon that all
this is done by th ? rabble, without country,
virtue, or honor, callod tho volunteers, "the
supportera ot order."
THE LI VINO MUMMY DOWER INO BEFORE HIS MOB.
Dulce is a coward, who trembles before thc
volunteers, and approves their acts of vandal?
ism. Still he has been boen put into such a fix
by the commissions of volunteers who have
come from Colon, Cardenas. Matanzas and
other places, to exact from him thc dismissal
ot their govornors, that with all hasto ho or
deied a body ol artillery from the seat of war
to garrison the Moro and the Cabana, and for
the garrison at'Matanzas bo called the batall?n
de ?ap?les (battalion of Naples.)
THE VOLUNTEERS DEMAND INO BLOOD.
lTt *^ftnfM -' H i .lianna
Thoy wished that on Saturday of Glory the
young prisoner, Don Manuel Despau, should
be given up to thom (tho volunteers) to cele
brate the Aleluya (religious loslival) by drag
ging him through tho streets. The Governor
and a commander ofvetoian troops who had
chargo of him in tho bairacks with only fifty
men, being both honest, refused to deliver
him. Thc murmur continued thus for severat
t^ys, until the Governor one day sent the pris?
oner to tho capital at break of day. Aa soon
as they heard of it three companies of those
barbarous men went to the Plaza dc Annas (a
square in Matanzas) to demand that the pris?
oner be delivered up to them.
PINTO COURAGEOUSLY DEFIES THEIL
Seno Lopez Pinto went down to the Plaza
and tned to pacify them, but tho mob did not
understand reason. Finally, losing all pa?
tience, he dre v his sword and told them he
would break it into a hundred pieces sooner
tlian consent to bo bullied by Bum a mob.
Thereupon they took their stand at the Casino,
and m the evening they came to Havana by
the train, fifty of them, the brave men, com?
manded by Tonrodon, and well equipped and
aimed, to oak the Captain-General for the de?
livery into their bands of the prisoner, that
they might take him back to Matanzas. For?
tunately the Uve mummy would not consent to
it; but on the following' day Colonels Ramon,
Herrera, Valdivielso and Rizo bad to go to Ma?
tanzas, worthy chief truly ol those bordes, in
order to satisfy, tame down, and please the
A DAY OF MO URNING IN HAVANA.
Yesterday was a day of mourning for thia
c tty, not only because the brave martyrs of
their country, Loon and Medina, suffered
death by the rile garote (and thoy died like
heroes, crying out "Long live Cuba free and
independent,'") but also because the brave
volunteers, indignant at sucb a display of cour?
age and heroism, gavo vont to their fcohngs
by firing indiscriminately aud charging with
the bayonet into thc defenceless multitude.
Different reports estimate tbe i umber of killed,
wounded, and injured at from six to twenty.
The volunteers boast of having hacked to
pieces, in his own house, an unfortunate
father of a family who lived in that neighbor
THE PRETENCES DNDER WHICH CUBANS ABE
Of course, as on other previous occasions,
they pretend that seditious crios were uttered,
and that shots were fired from tho terraces;
but the only things to account for these acts
are the ferocity and their thirst for Cuban
blood. When I listeu to the ;i to-day relating
their exploits agaius1 defenceless men, and an?
nouncing that tho "great day" (general mas?

ratified the judgment of a physician concerning thc
virtues of HOSTETTER'3 BITTERS, as may he seen
in the Immense quantities of this medicine that are
annually sold in every section of the land. It is now
recognized as greatly superior to all other remedies

ated os much sensation in thc community for their
remarkable cures as any other medicine extant It
ia a fact that in tno minds of many persons a preju*
dico exists against what are called patent medicines;

as HOrTETTER'd STOMACH BITTERS. Physleians

prejudice usurp your reason, to the everlasting in

thc kind that is reliable in all cases, and it is there?

their effects, and altogether valuable as a tonic or
remedy for indigestion.

xor SARATOGA "A" SPRING WATER.
Saratoga, in the Sta'o of New York, is one of the
most remarkable mineral reservoirs upon tba surface
of the globe. Within an aroa of a mile in diameter
are some thirty mineral springs-no two of them
alike. In some of tue waters, Chloride of Sodium
predominates; in others, Iodine, Magnesia, Sulphur,
Chalybeate, kc. The beneficial effects of some of
these waters, as medicinal agents, ore known
throughout tho civilized world. Probably one hun?
dred thousand persona visit these Springs annually.
Many hundred thousand bottles of the water are
transported and consumed in the various localities
of tho country.
The SARATOGA "A" SPRING WATER ?H pro?
bably the most effective mineral water found on
either continent. It will bo observed that it has ten
per cent greator mineral properties thin the cele?
brated Congress Spring; tour times that of Baden
Baden of Austria; Ava times that of A Ix la Chapelle
inPrnssia; twice that of Vichy in France; nearly
three times greator than the renowned Seltzer of
Germany; and equally over the Spas of Bath, Eng?
land, and Bissengen in Bavaria.
The reputation of this waler is based upon its
effects in diseases of the stomach, liver, bowels,
kidneys, and spleen, and acts with wonderful bene?
fit in cases of Chronic Dyspepsia, Constipation,
Gravel, Gout, Scrofula, Cutaneous Affections, Gene
lal Lethargy, Soreness, and Prostration of the sys?
The value of mineral waters has been prised and
acknowledged by medical men since the earliest
civilization. A celebrated authority says: "The vir?
tues of mineral waters have been best shown in the
treatment ot obscure and chronic diseases."
