THE STATE SVEREME COURT.
[SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE SEWS ]
COLUMBIA, April 24.-ID the Supreme Court
to-day, General McGowan cloeed the caso for
his side, in the great negro bond case. He was
answered by Mr. Thompson on several points,
which concluded thc most interesting and im?
portant ease of this term. General McGowan
spoke some twelve hours against the val! !ity
ot tho bonds. Both sides of the question have
been most thoroughly discussed, and it is pro?
bable that all similar casc3 will be continued
by agreement, sosa to let the decision in this
case settle tho principle involved.
Owing to its great importance, the decision
in this case will not be rendered until the va?
cancy caused by Hoge's resignation is filled.
After some further unimportant business,
thc court adjourned until Monday, when the
Second Circuit w?l be peremptorily called.
THE LONDON PRESS ON THC CUBAN QUESTION
PBOMPT ACTION OF THE FAENCE GOVERNMENT
SUCCESS CF THE SPANISH LOAN.
LONDON, April 22.-The London Post of to?
day-a conservative Whig organ-has an ela?
borate editorial article on the Cuban question,
in which it mentions that it is asserted that
President Grant bas A longing eye upon Cuba,
and would not be unwilling to distract the at?
tention of the people of the United States
from watching the comrie of internal affairs
by a war with eomo foreign power. A conflict
with Spain cannot leavo any doubt respect?
ing the issue, unless England and France
should interfere. A blow dealt at Cuba
would be tantamount to a blow dealt towards
the whole of the West Indies, and the acquisi?
tion of Cuba might be followed by that of Ja?
maica and Martinique. The same paper quotes
the recent acquisions of territory by the United
States aa a proof that it wants to acquire by
piecemeal all the possessions held bj European
powers in that latitude, and would naturally
commence by Cuba, because it belongs to the
weall est of the powers bavins- settlements in the
West Indies. France and England will doubt?

Cuba will be tolerated, or aid Spoin in retaining

GENTLEMEN-I have the honor to acknowl?
edge your letter of 31st ult., requesting to be
informed "as to what restrictions are imposod
by the recent quarantine law, upon vessels
trading between this port and the .British and
Spanish West Indies during the summer sea
I beg leave to inform you tbat the act of the
General Assembly, passed on the six'h day of
September, 1868, establishing quarantine at
Georgetown, Charleston and Hilton Head, will
be rigidly executed.
The second sectic i of this act 6xes the terms
of quarantine, viz :
..Vessels arriving at tho ports of Georg" town,
Charleston ani Hilton Hoad shall be subject <
to quarantine as follows:
'.1. All vessels li om any placo where pesti?
lential,' contagious or infectious disease exist?
ed at the time of their departure, or which i
shall have arrived at such place and proceeded
menee tucitajci ui mtvt pvi-?g, ?**, M- I-.?
which, during the voyage, any case of such i
disease shall have occurred, arriving between ?
the first day of May and the first of November,
shall remain at quarantine for at least thirty
days after their arrival, and at least twenty .
days after their cargo shall have boon dis?
tharged. and shall perform such other quaran?
tine as the health officers shall prescribe.
"2. AU vessels from any place (including
islands) in Asia, Atrica or the Mediten anean,
or from any of the West Indies, Bahamas, Ber?
muda or Western Islands, or from any place in
America, in the ordinary passage from which
they pass south of Hilton Head ; and all ves?
sels on board of which, during the voyage or
while at the port of their departure, any pei sou
shall hive been sick, arriving between tho first
day of May and tho first day of November, and
all vessels from a foreign port, and not em?
braced in the first subdivision of this section,
shall, on arriving at the quarantine groun?, be
subject to visitation by the health officers, but
shall not be detained beyond th o requisite time
for due examination and observation, unless
they shall have had on board during the voyage
some case of infectious, contagious or pestilen?
tial disease, in which oase they shall be sub?
ject to such quarantine and r?gulai iocs as the
health officers may prescribe.
"3. All vessels embraced in the foregoing
provisions, which are navigatod by steam,
shall be subject only to such length of quaran?
tine and regulations as tbs health officer
shall enjoin, uiless they shall have had on
hoard during the voyage some case of infec?
tious, contagious or pestilential disease, io
which c? io thev shall bo subject to such quar?
antine as the health officers shall proscribe."
This ia the law.
TJron a careful consideration of this section
of law, I am of opinion that the first clauso is
imperative, and that all vessels from any port
where, at the time of their departure, any in?
fectious, pestilential or contagious disease is
prevailing, whether lue crew and passengers
have oeeu healthy or sot, must be quarantined
by this act for at least thirty days atter arrival,
and at least twenty days after the cargoes have
been discharged. The second clause, in my
judgment, admits all from ports named in tho
section, and are dctaiued only for visitation
and e xamination by tho health officer, unless
they snail have hod on board during the voy?
age* some case of disease iu tho foregoing
clause. The third cl tuse, in regard to steam
vessels, is entirely discretionary, unless they
shall have had on board during the passage
any of t he prescribed diseases.
Thus, gentlemen, you have my interpreta?
tion of the quarantine laws, entrusted io me
for tho protection of the community of Charles?
ton and the prevention by importation of all
epidemic or contagious diseases. Whilst it
would give me much pain to trammel or em?
barrass your trade or commerce in any manner,
I have a duty to perform, and that tearlessly
and impartially, to execute the law, for which
I have been selected by the Executive of South

F.'-LSE-PACKED COTTON.-Yesterday, a lot of
n:r.uteen bales of cotton, from Abbeville, was
offered to Messrs. Blakely & Gibbes. Mr.
Gibbes sampled tho cotton and alter offering
254 cents per pound for it, made a close crimi?
nation of it, and found eighteen bales of it to
be falsely packed, beiug filled in tho middle of
the balea with cotton seed and wet and rotten
cotton. On boring into the middle of the bales
bushels of seed were found. The young mau
who had charge of tho cotton asserts very pos?
itive that the fraud was entirely unknown to
him, and that the packing was done on his
mother's plantation by th6 freedmen, who had

-Several recent events in England are lead?

The dwelling house of Mre. Mary A. Gore, in
Laurens District, was burnt on the night of
March 19th. The sleeping inmates narrowly
escapod, and almost the entire contents of the
house were consumed. A negro man and wo?
man, husband and wife, (the last but recently
living on tho place) have been arrested and are
in jail, charged with applying tho torch.

Tho Orangeburg News give thc following ac- |
count of a bloody murder in the Fork: "On
last Monday morning, about six o'clock, as '
Mr. W. L. W. Biley and two colored laborers |
were making arrangements, in his horse lot, ,
:o commence the week's work, two white men, j
Hansford S. Porter and Millcdgo Porter, his j
unexpectedly to Mr. Riley. Shortly after their
arrival Mr. Janice W. Jordan, an employee of |
Mr. Riley's, alao came in, and spoke to the Por- ,
tera, shaking hands with Hansford. Milledgo ,
Porter had in bis bands a double barrel gun,
and told Jordan that be had come to arrest
bim and take him to Orangeburg, at the same
time pointing his gnu at him. Jordan le
msrkcd,'Don't reckon, but I surrender.' Jor?
dan then took Riley asido and asked him what
it meant. Riley said he did not know; ask him
fci his authority. Thoy then ttepped back to
where the Porters were standing and Jordan
asked Porter to let bim soo his au tb cn ty for
the arrest. Jordan und Riley both were stand?
ing between tho Porters. Millodge Porter re?
plied that he 'did not have any.' Jordan turn?
ed and faced Riley, who was stooping over a
little, getting something out of b:s pocket,
when Hansford S. Porter presented a six
shooter, fired over R: Io v's shoulder, the
ball striking Jordan centrally in the breast,
and entering tho right cavity of the heart.
Jordan fell m the arme of Mr.* Riley, aud died
in about fifteen minutes. Tho Porters then
' ?libera tely bade good morning and walked off.
At the crack of the pistol the colored men left,
leaving Mr. Riley alone with (ho dying man,
and having no weapon of any description at
band, and the Porters being fully armed and
apparently desperate, he was powerless to ar?
rest them. Sometime airee, we gave an ac?
count of the shooting of Mr. John Porter, a
brother of Hansford and Milledge, by Lorti
gue, in the Fork, and it is supposed that thc
Portera Dcheved Jordan assisted Lartigue in
that transaction. Tho ball that killed Jordan
passed over tho shoulder of Mr. Riley, takiug
the lint from bis coat, and the powder burning
his nee*; in the meantime it Mr. Riley nad
straightened up he would have received tho
discbarge himself, and wo would have had to
chronicle also the death, perhaps, of this esti?
mable geutleman, as Milledge Porter sood
ready with his double-barrel gun lovelled to
shoot Jordan it Hansford failed. Tho coroner's
inquest announced the deed a cold blooded
murder. Tho Porters, as yet, have not been
arrested, -iir. Jordan was the son-in-law of
Mr. Daniel Young, and we hear, an honobt,
hard-working mao. He leaves a young wife
to mourn his untunoly late."
FATAL KEROSENE ACCIDENT.
The New Oileans Picayune gives the shock?
ing details of ibo death, from a kerosene lamp
explosion, of Mrs. Benedict, the wife of a
wealthy Louisiana planter, residing a short
distance below New Orleans :
Mr. Benedict, her husband, had left the plan?
tation for a visit to the city upon business, and
Mrs. Benedict, with her little babe, had just re?
tired to rest tor the night when thc accident
occurred. A coal oil lamp was burning upon u
standby thc bedside, and when the lady had
i-ecu that her little one waa tucked in and
cai ed for, ehe leaned forward and with her
hand upon the screw of tho lamp turned it
down, at the same time blowing down tho
chimney to effectually extinguish the hut ern.g
flame. In a.. instant'the blaze which had been
forced down into the lamp ignited tho oil
resulting in an explosion, the burning fluid
covering the night clothes of tho lady and
spreading itself over the bcd. Mrs. Benedict's
screams attracted the attention of a nurse in
an adjoining apartment, who rushing in seized
the b thc, whose night clothes wero also on
fire, and left the room in a state of terror which
seemed to have paralyzed her. Mre. Bei.od c ,
with great presence of mind, wi upped the bed
clothes about her to suffocate thc fire, but
rinding that this would not do she left, the jed
and room and ran down a flight of stairs into
tho parlor, where she endeavored to a iflo thc
flames with tho rugs and other woolou articles
she could get hold of. Still thc fire demon
clung to her, literally scorching her to doatli
by inches, and ut last, in tue ireuzy ot despair
she rushed Irom the house out into the night,
and across tho fiuld, pass tho susnr. house
to tho dwelling of the overseer, who,
arousod by her cries, opened tho door
and hurried her into his wife's apartments.
The poor lady, around whom linens were quick?
ly thrown, saturated with oil, was one living
masa of burns; but for all this, and feeling
that sho had but a little while to live, she
talked as calmly as she was wont to do bet. rc
the terrible accident bad happened. The over?
seer, at her direction, left ut oucc for tho
house, and succeeded in putting out tho fire
and securing certain valuable papas, the
place of ksoping of which hud been detailed to
him bv Mrs. Benc?lico, with a calmness which
was wonderful in one writhing in the agonies
of death. Sue lin rered but a few hours. In

THE EAST RIVER BRIDGE.
The Greatest Project of the Age.
The project of Mr. R?chling, the famous en?
gineer and suspension bridge builder, for unit?
ing New York and Brooklyn by spanning the
East River, has beeD approved by the commis?
sion appointed to examine it, and it is said
that thc work will be at once commenced.
The first operations will be upon the Brook?
lyn side, near the Fulton Ferry, whero excava?
tions will be made, ninety-seven feet, down to
the rock upon which the foundations of the
abutment towers will be laid. Digging on
the New York side will immediately follow, near
Pier No. 29, East River. Rock is there found
at one hundred and seven feet. The new bridge
will be a striking and graceful feature of
the surrounding scenery. Its proportions will
be col'oasal. The entire length will be 5862feet,
or about a mile and one ninth; but these figures
may vary slightly when tho termini become
settled. The New York terminus will either be
on Chatham-street, opposite the Register's
office, or in Chatham Square. The terminus
in Bn oklyn will bo near the junction of Main
and Fulton-streets. The structure will thus
overtop many houses wh'ch are situated upon
the Blope towards the river on each side. It
will bo suspended in three openings, two of
which will be on land, and one, of 1600 feet,
over the water. The floor will be both fhro and
water proof, tod will serve as roof to tho houses
and stoics beneath. Its width will bo eighty
feet within the the railings, equal to Broadway,
and will be divided into fivo spaces, marked by
six hues of iron trusses, independently ora side?
walk of six feet on each side.
As tho new bridge will weigh 3483 tons, being
far more than twice as heavy and wide as any
other structure of the kind in existence, the
jar upon it will be scarcely perceptible, and the
most violent winds will be powerless against it.
Its weight in the daytime will bo perpetually
augmented by more or less cars, carts, animals,
and human Doings. Thc maximum weight of
these, if covering the entire surface, would be
1270 tons, but an average of about 100 tons
may be calculated on. Two passenger ti ams
of cars upon eteel rails will run backward and
forward over the bridge alternately. They
will be attached to an endloss wire rope,
propelled by a stationary engine on the
Brooklyn std?. Their speed may be at
twenty or thirty mileB au hour without injury
to tbc structure. The heigth of the bridge
above high tide will be one hundred and thirty
feet, aud vessels, the upper masts of which
exceed that, measurement, will be required to
lower them on passing, which can be easily
done. Prominent features of the work will be
the towers on each side of the river. Their
leng'.h at the base will be one hundred and
thir y-four feet, and extreme width fifty-six
feet. Their heigth tojhe roof will be two hun?
dred and sixty-eight feet, at which point the
length will be reduced to poe hundred and
twenty feet, and the width to forty feet.
The* estimated cost of the bridge is to bo
$6,675.357, without the purchase of real estate
on either side. It will, perhaps, be nearer
17,000.000. Of this $5,000,000 have been iaised
$3,000,000 by the Brooklyn Common Council,
$1,500,000 by that of New York, and $500,000 bv
private subscription. When the work will have
become far advanced, through the expenditure
of the $5.000.000, it will bo easy to issue bonds
for the remaining sum needed. -

Is Tired of Playing Correspondent
;Coircspondence Cincinnati Commercial, April 20.]
Thero is so much interest conterod about

will over bo a return. A great empire is being
built up, and its power is gathered about its
capital at Washington. All interests are affect?
ed by its working, and all eyes are turned upon
its central city. A great good can bo accom?
plished by having employed as correspondents
the beet talent and the highest character. I do
not mean to insinuato that wo have nono of
that sort. I mean only that we ought to have
moro. Mr. George Alfred Townsend, General
Boynton, Sidney Andrews, and a corps of oth?
ers have done good work; but there is moro to
bo done and a wider field before us in which to
It'S not pleasant work. If one does his duty
as a correspondent, he finds himself in a con?
tinual s talo of war. There is so much I hat is
corrupt, so much that is false, so many bad
men and snch a host of weak ones, that the
correspondent who looks only to his duty fiodB
himself regarded as ill-tempered, unreasona?
ble and ugly. Then the correspondent feels a
traditionary contempt entertained by certain
ancient John Donkeys, whoso presence in Con?
gress is a casualty. They haston to repress
this, aud receive countenance in the repression
from certain rats in the profession who dis?
grace their class.
If this stupid and extravagant business of
publishing the Globo could be stopped, as it
ought to be, tho legislative acts of our law?
makers would be sifted through the brains of
correspondents, and the knives would find an
unhealthy notorietv, and the fools no existence
whatever outside the narrow circle of their own
egotism. As it is, all find a common burial in
this dry husk of brain which is published at
such a tearful cost of money and reputation.
My own experiences as a correspondent draw
to a close. This is my last letter, and I am
glad lo be relieved. You will excuse tho ego?
tism that nrompts mo to spook of myself. It is
natural. I have had a realizing sense of the
power of a little pen wbon aimed at scamps
"Prou l I am, well miy I bo, to seo
The men, not fearing Qed, afraid of rae."
I have tho satisfaction of knowing that I
have added an army to the host of my ene?

JO-A CARD FROM MR. GEORGE H. GRU?
BER.-To MT FBIEKDS : It is with extreme regret
tbat I announce to my friends and patrons that cir?
cumstances beyond my control compelled me to dis?
continue my business at Un; old stand of N. M. Pon
TEE ii Co., No. 230 Kinsr-streot. Io making this
announcement I beg to teodor my sincere thanks
for their liberal patronage and support, and trust
tbat in my new position they will extend the same
liberality. .My limited capital, together with losses
of the past three years, impaired 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 Iosmg my health, business and friends. In this
extremity I appealed to Messrs WM. S. CORWIN A
CO., ami tho liberality which so characterizes that
Urm was at once extended to me, and I am now en?
abled to offer better inducements. Tbeir extensive
capital and experience permits them to offer a finer
class of goods at about thc prices I had to pay, par?
ticularly in Teas, Champagnes, Clarets, Brandies,
Ac. Tho combined ef^rts of myself and fortnor
partner, Mr. .n M LS 8. MARTIN, will be to please
you, and we respectfully solicit a continuance ol
your patronage; and we pledge ourselves to give our
personal and prompt attention to such. Agaiu
thanking you for past favors and indulgencies, I re?
main your obedient servant,

am~ COMMON SENSE RULES THE MASS
of tho people, whatever the misnamed and misan?
thropic philosophers may say to the contrary. Show
them a good thing, let its merits bc clearly demon,
struted, and they will not hesitate to give il their
most cordial patronage. The masses have already
ratified the Judgment of aphysician concerning thc
virtues of HOSTETTER'S BITTERS, as may be seen
in the immense quantities of this medicino that are
annually sold in every section of tho land. It is now
recognized as greatly superior to all other remedies
yet devised for diseases of tho digestive organs, euch
as diarrhoea, dys ntcry, dyspepsia, and for the vo
rious fevers that arise from derangement of those
portions ol thc system. Hostetter's name ie rapidly
becoming a booschold word, from Maine to Texas,
from thc sh: rea of the Atlantic to tho Pacific. These
celebrated STOMACH BI TTE It S have doubtless cre?
ated as much sensation in tbe community for their
remarkable cures as any other medicine extant It
is a fact that in thc minds ol many persone a preju?
dice *xl*ts against what are called patent medicines ;
but why should this prevent you resorting to an ar?
ticle that bas such an array of testimony to support i t
as HOiTETTER'd STOMACH BLTTERS Physicians
prscrlbe lt; why should you disciud ii? Judges, usual?
ly considered men of talent, have and do use it in
tueir iambic?; why should you reject it? Let not your
prejudice usurp your mason, to the tvorlas?ng in?
jury of your health. It is tho only preparation of
the kind that is rcliablo in all cases, and it is there?
fore worthy of tho consideration of the afflicted.
The BITTERS aro pleasant to tbe taste, agreeable in
their effects, and altogether valuablo as a toute or
remedy for indigestion.

In this Community,
THIS ASSOCIATION WA8 ORGANIZED ON THE
22d of Jone lost, only nine months a?o, and has al?
ready secured an annual revenue from premiums on
existing policies of nearly $500,000 (Five Hun?
dred Thousand Dollars). Its new business for Ihe
month of December was $72,393 36, insuring the
amount of $1,157,000. Its new business for the
month of January was $80,624 71, Insuring die
amount of $1,649,000.
Ono month's business being greater than that done
by tho largest and wealthiest Life Insurance Compa?
nies in thc United Slates during the entire first
year of their existence.
The Association was first started by tho most
wealthy and Influential citizens of St Louis, for
the purpose of changing the current of Life Insur?
ance and Life Insurance capital from the East to
the Weet and South, and as Ita plan is liberal and
Just to every section, State and district, the wealthy
men of the West and South generally are Insuring
their lives in it, to the exclusion of other companies.
This is shown by the tact that the policies issued
during the months of December and January are of
an averange amonnt of $7.308 42, drawing an aver?
age annual premium of $418 20.
The largest average attained by any other compa?
ny in the United States ia about $40 JO to each poli?
cy, while thc average size of all policies existing in
this country ls only about $2500.
These facts speak for themselves.
