. 'f ^SfflMj?a^^ the Phil?
delphiaLedger, writing on Tuesday, thus xe?
lera to the, report ed sailing of'au expedition
from vbat port for Coba : "Ail. expedition for
Chiba, numbering one hundred ricked mea,
left this port at three o'clock this aftcruoon, in
a coasting steamer, which is koowa to have
' been quietly taking en board a Targe quantity
of ams and ammunition, at tbe foot of Chris?
topher-street, North River, daring the past
week or tea days. Each man is provided with
? rifle and uni form. The report is that the ex?
pedition is the handiwork of the Caban Jon ta
in this city. The United States marshal waa
notified of these facts thia morning. He tele?
graphed tbem at once to Secretary Fish, and
asked for instructions, but with what result
cannot be ascertained at this writing. As far
as I can ascertain, there are but ten Americans
. ajajjpf the party, ?O the rest being Cabans,
.with the exception of six negroes. Their
destination ia Dead Man's Island, one of
the Florida Keys, and after debarking there, it
is their intention to make for t he Cuban coast
in small baata. The voyage, it is said, can be
nude in four hours. The whole number or
: rifles on board is said to be about five u ti?
died. The stern of the steamer was covered
. np with canvas as long as she laid at the
.Christopher-street wharf, so that her name was
. not visible to the public gaze. The news or tbe
departure of the expedition creates a lively
?rjmrinn about town. Many are apprehen?
sive that it will be overhauled by some of the
! numerous Spanish men-of-war in the Gmt be?
fore it reaches its objective point. It is said
that tbe United States authorities here have
winked at this movement, which was no secret
to somo of the marshal's deputies; bat whether
this allegation is just or otherwise, time and
inquiry w?l show. Meanwhile, the organ of
the Junta, La Revolution, is out in a very bit?
ter article with reference to the policy of tho
United Stat a."
-The New York Commercial Advertiser
ssya that a proposition for the relief of the
Americans sufferers by the depredations of the
Alabama and other anglo-Confcdcrate priva?
teers ia non receiving the careful considera?
tion of the President, the members ot the Cabi?
net and leading Congressmen. It involves the
passage of a law at tho commencement of the
session of Congress, in December next, autho?
rizing tho appointment of a commission to
audit and pass upon all American claims
against" England for damages sustained by
violation or evasion of the neutrality "laws
during tbe recent civil war, The United
States Government will then assume these
claims, and present., them in , a single
item in the account against Great Britain
with a demand for immediate restitution. In
case of a refusal, ulterior measures will be
adopted which it is believed will be backed by
the entire American people. This course is
calculated to obviate the ahn oat interminable
delays which usua H y attend the settlement of
claims against foreign governments. Many of
the Alabama claimants are poor, and according
to precedent, rnany of them may be reduced to
bankruptcy or death, before their jost claims
oin bs-settled. The President is known to
folly recognize their claims to the protection
of the government, and is anxious to present
the matter in a tangible shape to. the British
authorities. These views are also shared by
SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 8, 1869.
The May Elections.
Under the proclamation of Governor
Scott, dated April 19, 1869, the following
elections of county officers will take place
on May 25th ;.. .
Io the County of Abbeville, two county com?
missioners and a coroner.
. In tbe County of Anderson, a school com?
missioner and a coroner.
In the County of Barnwell, a county commis?
sioner and a school commissioner.
ID the Coa a ty of Chester, a coroner.
In the County of Chesterfield, a coroner.
In the County of Colleton, a jadge of the pro?
bate court and a coroner.
, In the County of Darlington, a clerk of the
court of oom m on pleas and a coroner. :
- In the County of Edg ofield, a coron or.
In tba County of Fairfield, a jadge of the
probate court, a coroner and a connty com?
In tbe Connty of Georgetown, two county
commissioners and a coroner.
In the County of Horry, a county commis
In the County of Kershaw, a county com?
missioner and a coroner.
Ia the C J un ty of Laurens, a school commis?
sioner and a coroner.
In the Connty of Lexington, a county oona
missioner and a ooroner.
In the count? of Orangeburg, a school com?
missioner and a coroner.
In the Connty of Oconee, a coroner.
In tho Connty of Pickens, a coroner.
In the county of Richland, a school com?
missioner and a coroner.
In the County of Sumter, a coroner.
In the County of Union, a coroner.
. Inthe County of York, a county commis?
sioner and a coroner.
These offices are important, because of
the powers entrusted to the persons who
hold them, in matters of education and
county taxation. -Upon the way in which
these offices ara filled will depend, in a
great degree, whether our local affairs are
conducted with tba view of securing the
moat benefit, at the least cost, or for the
purpose of stir ring op antagonism of race
and niling the pockets of officials. Strictly
speaking, there is no political question in
volved in the elections. Intelligence, hon?
esty ?nd reepeotability are the only quali?
fications which shouldie demanded of the
candidates, ?sd the men who possess them
should1 be supported by Democrat and Re
publican .alike. The Radicals may, as
usual, oraok their whip and denounoe every
candidate who is not blaok in the face or
black in the heart. If they do this, the
attempt should still be made to show their
poor dupes that it is to their interest to
hate every public office ? filled by oapable
and tr nat worthy persona. This may. fail,
and a Bquare stand-up fight for the election
of the best men will be the only resource,
aa it is oertainly the simplest,
lo Let us now drive the entering wedge
Let us prove that we are resolved to have a
word to say whon our money is to be spent
ajad our property taxed. Let us show Rad?
icalism that henceforth no offioe, however
small, shall fall into the hands of ignorance
and vice without a hard and persistent
struggle. By persevering, by soiling every
opportunity of electing a good officer in the
place of a bad one, we oan, in the course
of the next two years, revolutionize the
whole State and local .government. This
can be done. It is an object, worth striving
for, and the first step to be made is in car?
rying the May elections.
Forney on Figures.
Forney fays cf Governor Scott, of this
State: "The bonds that were selling at 28
"cents on the dollar, when he took post essiou,
"are now worth from 50 to 57." The truth is
tbat old State bonds were 6-5 to 67 on the day
of Soott's inauguration, and were quoted
yesterday at 74, which is about 30 par cent,
less than their value when the State gov?
ernment was in responsible hands. Forney
says ot the late lamented Mayor Clark :
"The city debt of Charleston was five mil
.-lions when the present Mayor was elected,
"and its securities have risen from 03 to
* 68." This also is wide of the roark; for
the price of city stock when Mayor Clark
was inaugurated was 46 to 48.

We print, this morning, an article on the
subject of the movement originated in Mo?

subject ia one-as the writer well says-of
the gravest consequence to our people, and

it their approval. Our columns will, ss far

Tne Western Oralia Trade.
The West is ina ferment just jiow over
the question whether wheat shall be car?
ried from St. Louis down the Mississippi
and thence by sea to Europe and New York,
or sent by rail and canal via Chicago and
Buffalo to New York. The St. Louie mer?
chants have it very much at heart to rival
or surpass Chicago ns a shipping point for
grain, and they-figure oat that they can
move it to New Orleans for less than 10
cents a bushel, whereas it costs 32j cents
per bushel to move it from Chicago to New
York. Therefore they argue they can afford
to pay the difference between 10 cents and
82} cents for grain, sud thus divert it alto?
gether from its present channel to New
York via Chicago. New York, however, is
enlisted with Chicago in having the grain
seek its market by tbs present route, and
the New Yorkers are debating how to
cheapen transportation, BO as to compete
with the Mississippi line. Some of the Ne w
York papers seem inclined ia the emer?
gency to favor the Ruskin idea that no rail*
road or ?anal should ever deolare dividends,
but that these moans of transportation should
be controlled by government so that con?
sumers need pay no more than the bare cost
of carrying products from one part of the
country to another. There certainly seems
to be something wrong in the fact, tbat
one-third of the price of wheat should be
consumed in getting it to market.
