LONDON, Jone 4L -la the House of Lords,
this evening, Sir Stratford de Badoliffe moved
for a cop; of all the Alabama treaty. He said
the government had shown, tho greatest con?
ciliation in ita desire to maintain peace, and
trusted that rvhen negotiations were resumed
between the two countries a calmer spirit than
that which succeeded Hr. 'Sumner's speech
would show its influence. He hoped that ne?
gotiations would place their relations upon a
satisfactory footing, and all would rejoice if
that end could be attained by the able man
whom all loved.
Lord Clarendon regretted the unavoidable
delay in fur ais biog the papers called for. He
traced the history of negotiations, and said
that the House of Commons was not entitled
to assume that the majority of the Senate and
people of the United States supported Mr.
Sumner's demand. He believed that without
intervention the sympathetic feelings and good
sense of America would ultimately prevail. The
friendly feelings of the United States were re- j
oiprobated. He would shrink fro n no sacrifice
to maintain peace, bat the national honor must
be maintained. Be was not aware of the nature
of Mr. Motley's ins tr nc ti o ? s, bnt he hoped what
had o?curr='d would promote and not hinder
negot i a ti oas, as the terms that England waa wil?
ling to accord or most refuse were well known.
LONDON, June 5.-The temperate speech of
Lord Clarendon, in the House of Lords, last
evening, on the subject of the Alabama treaty,
elicited the following comments from the Lon?
don journal*, this morning :
The Standard says : "Negotiations for the
Alabama treaty failed because America never
intended them to succeed. If England now
admits that it is her duty to renew her efforts
for a peaceful settlement, it is withe nt hope.
Our honest desire for snob a settlement will
not be appreciated bat by a small section of
the American people. Meantime, until the
details of Motley's mission sro known, we
should fold oar bands and limit oar compli?
ments to him AS*A great historian."
The Star says : ''Americans can no longer
doubt dor willingness to do them right, or oar
determination to preserve oar national char?
acter ?nd cr?dit,"
The Post says a new attempt for the settle?
ment of the Alabama claims most come from
America, and hopes that doe pr?caution wu 1
be taken to secure England against aocepting
~~ a treaty almost with humility, which will be
rejected at last with contumely.
The Standard, after attributing arrogance
and greed to America, says: "No English min?
ister ever had to make any explanation so bu
muijtfing as that which Lord Clarendon bad
ottered in tho House of Lords. However con?
scious of the sincerity of his motives and tbe
rectitude of his conduct, it was no less a no?
mination to be obliged to treat, in the conven?
tional phrases of diplomacy, with a country
that baa act?d as the United^tates did ii the
Ibo Telegraph (Ministerial organ) says:
"Prom what has transpired in tho House of
Lords last night, Minister Motley cao ascer?
tain what hopes there are to reopen negotia?
tions, end be will see that, in the opinion of
Englishmen, the country has gone far enough.
What be may solicit with success, be can find
in the articles of the rejected convention; and
what it is hopeless even to suggest, he can find
in Senator Sumner's speech."
Lord Broughton, formerly Secretary of War,
is dead, aged 83.
SPAIN AND CTHA.
MADRID, June 5.-Admiral Topete read
Dulce's telegram, announcing-bia resignation
as Captain General of Cuba, before the Cortes
last evening. Great excitement prevailed.
Marshal Serrano asked for a suspension of
judgment until thc arrival of Dulce, and uutil
particulars in the matter are known. It it
' rumored that General Dulce was recalled on
account of bis lenity to tin Cabin insurgents.
TJBZB STATUS OE TEXAS.
WASHING ION, Jane 5.-In the case of James
Waster, a ci ti z sn of Texis, tried for murder,
convicted and sentenced to be bung by a mili?
tary commission, tho Attorney-General has
given an opinion, ia which he reviews the Re?
construction laws and the duties of command?
ing officers, and says: "As tho State of Texas
bad nut, in Sept em bet, 1838, aid has not since,
adopted a constitution in conformity with the
provisions of the aot of Congress, and has not
become entitled to representation in Congress,
the act was operative io Texas at the tims the
military commission was organized for the
trial ol Weaver, and the commanding general
exercised the discretion eu trusted to bim by
the third section, by ' deciding that it
was necessary that a military commission
should be organized for the trial. If, there?
fore, the statute of March 2 1867, is a consti?
tutional and valid statute, it theo appears that
the jurisdiction ol the said military commis?
sion was complete, and that there is no lecal
av**obstacl9 to the execution ot the sentence.''
The AttorTjey-General maintains that the right
of war dil noFtTBcessariiy terminate with the
cessation of active and actual hostilities, sod
not ontil the work of restoring the relations
of peace shall have been accomplished, can it
be so considered. It is for Congress to deter?
mine when the war has so far ended that the
work eau be safely and successfully completed.
The Attorney-General sees no reason in law
for withholding the President's approval of the
findings." During his argument, the Attorney
Genital said : ' It is obvi?os that Congress,
auder the constitution, has no right io time of
peace, to subject any citizen of a State to trial
and punishment by military power."

THE RECENT COUNTY ELECTIONS.
? ddltioraai K ct arni.
The returns of the recent oonnty elections,
given in our State exchanges, are somewhat
fragmentary and unsatisfactory, but indicate
geeeially a great lack of interest among oar
people in the result. We give below such ad?
ditional particulars as have reached us :
An esteemed correspondent of TBE NEWS,

On the 25th ins?? an election was beld for
Probate Jndge, County Commissioner and Cor?
oner of Colleton. as usual bore the Radical
nominees have been elected. There was no
attempt made on tho part of the whites to
nominate and ron candidates in opposition to
the Radicals, bnt a part of the colored people,
completely disgusted with carpet-bag adventu?
rers and irres poa si bl o plunderers, openly de?
clared they wonld not sapport the Radical
nominee for Paobate Jndge, Jesse S. Craig,
(formerly member pf negro convention; aud
nominated C. ff Farmer, Esq, ex-Jadeeof
the District'Court, asan i u de pen do ut candi?
date. The white people of this coonty, from
their past experience of tbe punic fai tn of the
negroes, did not believe that' they wonld vote
against the nominees of their party, and there?
fore remained at home and left this little band
of well-meaning freedmen to fight out their
battle almost alone. Uni of tbree hundred
votes for Farmer, two-thirds were colored. The
Radicals were m diff?re Lt at first, bat fearing
Farmer would be elected the leading county
officers attended the different polls, and by in?
timidation and threats, and, in some cases, by
open violence, took away the Farmer tickets
and compelled the negroes to vo.e for Craig.
Tho result was tbe election of the following
Radicals: Probate J.dge, Jesse 8. Craie;
County Commissioner, G. P. Jacoby; Coroner,
J. J. Halford.
The Abbeville Press of Thursday last Bays :
The Commissioners of Election, after receiv?
ing the report ot the varions boards of mana?
gers, concluded (after a three days' delibera?
tion,) to adopt the same without addition of
mollification or comment. This report differs
in vanona particular? from the imperfect re?
torna which ?e jubkahed last week, and ia
substantially as follows :

U. S. CIRCUIT COURT--CHIEF JUSTICE
S. P. CHASE, PRESIDING.
The court opened at ten o'clock Saturday
morning, Chief Justice S. P. Chas-J and Judge
Bryan on the bench.
Chief Justice Chase delivered the following
TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY BARRELS OF MOLASSES
AND OTHER MOP.CH A>DI3E Vd. TSE UNITED
STATIS-CN A DUI HALTS'.
This cause comes here on appeal from a de?
cree of condemnation pronounced hv the Dis?
trict Court against certain merchandise, as
forfeited to the United States, by reason of at?
tempted fraud upou the revenue.
The decree of condemnation is issued against
tho whole cargo of tho British schooner Aid,
mentioned in an invoice of goods consigned to
Salas & Co., and imported into Charleston on
the second of July, 18GG, from Matanzas in tho
Island of Cuba. ' _
The packages falsely entered upon the in?
voice were foor hogsheads entered as contain?
ing sugar, each nf which in fact contained a
cask of brandy or distilled spirits, packed in
sugar; and three other hogshead* entered as
sugar, each of which in fact contained a case
of segara packed in sugar; and lour quarter
casks entered as win/, each of which IQ fact
contained rum or distilled spirits. 'lhere were
twenty-five hogsheads entered as sugar, in all
of winch seven unlawfully entered, as first
stated, and thirty quarter casks entered as
wine, of which lour unlawfully entered. The
rest of the hogsheads of sugar, the rest of the
quarter casks of wine and the whole remain?
der of tho cargo, consisting of two hundred
and filly barrels and twenty-three tierces of
molasses, OL e hundred and thirty-one barrels
of su/ar and a large quaff ity of other goods,
such as maccaroni, olivo oil, sugar, syrup and
the wine, seem to have been truly entered
upon the invoice. The whole invoice was con?
signed to Salae & Co., of Charleston. The
evidence excludes all reasonable doubt that
the goods, except twenty bags of coffee, were
purchased by or for account of Salas & Co. io
Cuba, either through DaCosta & Madan or
with funds furnished by that firm. The whole
cargo was shipped by DaCosta & Madan, un?
der-the direction of F. P. Salas, and bills were
drawn bv them on Salas & Co. for the amount
The claims put in by other persons are un?
supported by the proofs, lt is remarkable that
Salas & Co. disclaim ownership and claim only
BS consignees. As consignees, however, this
firm, through one of its m ambers, F. P. Salas,
represents the invoice as true, made an entry
of the goods by reason of it, at the Custom?
house, Charleston, and obtained the usual per?
mit to land part of the goods, for which he
was prepared to pay the duties. A part ot
these goode were lauded und conveyed to the
house of Salas & Co. While the Aid was being
discharged under the permit, it was d scov
ered that a parc of che goods were falsely en?
tered on the invoic '. The entry and permit
were, therefore, revoked, and all the goods
mentioned in the invoice, whether remaining
on board the schooner or landed, were seiz.-d,
and the bill now before os was filed for con
dcmnalion. Two grounds arc relied upon for
toe reversal of tho decree of tho District
First, that the seizure of part of the goods
was upon land, and that as to this portion
there is no jurisdiction m admiralty. Second,
that the forfeiture contemplated by the statute
is of the fraudulent packages only, and not of
the whole invoice.
To the first objection I think it is a sufficient
answer that no oojection to the jurisdiction is
taken in the claim and answer of Sala- ? Co.
But if the objection were not too late, it would
be difficult to sustain it. The goods ware m
the act of being discharged. The discharge
Lad not been completed. A large portion was
still on board the vessel '1 he fraud was not
discovered until a part bad been lanced. Un?
der the circumstances, it is not unreasonable
to regard that portion rf the goods which had
boen put on shore as still a part of the cargo
of the vessel, and the whole as subject to the
jurisdiction of the admiralty.
The other objection mus: also bo overruled. I
shall not now outer into tbe history of tho pro?
gressive severity with which Congress had en?
forced, by forfeit ares, the payment of duties
on imported merchandise, first providing for
the forfeiture of the particular articles import?
ed in violation of law, alterward by forfeiture
of the package in which thoso articles wero
contained, and finally enacting the law of
March 3. 1863.
'1 his last act provides that no goods, wares
or merell i n dise imported alter July 1, 1803,
shall bc admitted to entry unless on produc?
tion of the required invoice and compliance
with tho other telina prescribed, and that it
auy owner, consignee or agent of any goods,
w Yes or merchandise .-hull attompt "to make
entry ot them by false invoice, said goods
shall be forfeited.
What goods ? 1 ho particular articles fraudu?
lently imported. That will hardly bc contended.
Tor it would mu mate tho already existing penal?
ly; and the policy of Congress, in view of the
exigencies of thc revenue and of imaginary
fraud, was to retain, not diminish, the formel
surety. .Was it thc packages in which the
fraudulent articles was concealed? This con?
struction would leave, tho former hw, in this
respect, unaltered, while it was tho manifest
purpose of Congress to alter it, and augment
the penally. No construction will carry out
tho obvious design except that which the
words of the law manifestly suggest, and
which make the penalty apply to th" wholo
invoice, owned or shipoed by Salas. This con?
struction condemns all tho goo ls included in
the invoice, except tho twenty bags of coffoo
belonging to Gonzales. The decree of tho
District Court will, therefore, be affirmed.
J. H. BALDWIN VS. CAROLINE A. LAMAR, ADMINIS?
TRATRIX OF C. A. L. LAMAR.
This was originally a suit on which a verdict
was obtained the 9th of May, 1859, by the I
plaintiff against thc defendant, for $23 350. Cn
motion, this verdict was set aside, and a now
trial .was ordered. On the 18: h of May. 1860,
another verdict was renderod against the de?
fendant for $14 666 66. On tho 1th of June,
tho time for liliug the bill of exceptions was
extended lor two months. On (ho 8'b of Au?
gust, thc time tor tiling exceptions was again
extended to the 1st of November, 1860.
The civil war, which soon followed, prevent?
ed any further action at that tims. On the 13 li
ot February, 1867, the plaintiff proposed to file
a transcript ot tho proceedings of the Circuit
Court in this case, and also in the caso of Bald?
win vs. C. A. L. Ls mir, and otb-rs. A rule
was issued upon the administratrix, L mir,
to sb ow cause why the order prayed for should
not be made. Tue rule was onl</ served and
returued, and on the 21st of May. 1867, the or?
der was made and the transcript filed.
A motion is now made for a judgment upon
the verdict evidenced by this record. Tho
statute of the S'a te, which has been practi?
cally adopted as the rule of proceeding in this
court, provides that tho transcript of a record
lost or abstracted, when proved Rod filed,
shall ha vn precisely thc same effect as if the
record had never been disturbed.
The question then is: What wonld be the
right of the plaintiff if the verdict, obt tined iu
May. 1860 had rem m.ed on tho record of tho
court during this wbolo period, and now, for
the first time, a judgment was asked upon it?
Undoubtedly a judgment ought to be entered
upon the verdict; but it cannot be entered
nuncj ro tune. The accidents and events of
thu war must be regarded as carsmg inevita?
ble dela>. A judiraieut will only be rendered
when asked. The plaintiff would be entitled
to a judgment at this tenn, if this was ali.
Hilt Lamar, the d?fendant, hos been dead tout
yeare. Thc plaintiff appears to have takou for
granted that tho i^suo of the rule to short'
causo why the older to tile the transcript
should not bc entered made the admin?
istratrix a party to ibis record. We do
uot think so. Wo think that the record
stands precisely as n would stand if
thero had been no war, and this was the next
term after the verdict. If Mr. Lam >r had died
alter the rendition of the verdict, boforo judg
meut could bo entered, it would then be neces?
sary to make thc administratrix a party. This
could bc done iu various wa73, uccolding to
circumstances. It could be done on motion, or
by a rule to show cause, or by a soire facias;
and wo think a soire facias shout J be issued
in this case especially; the administratrix is
not a citizen of this State, and it is proper that
she shou'd have the opportunity of pleading to
tbe soire facias. We do not know that any
plea will avail ber. We do not propose to go
into an examination of any question of jurisdic?
tion or other defence in advance. Tbs caso
was transferred to this court from the Circuit
Coutt for the District of Georgia. We have
been referred to as authority for retranafer.
No order for retransfer, there fore, will now bo
The case will be continued, io order that the
administratrix of the deceased defendant may
be made a party to tbe record.

It is stared that the shares h the Chariest:

To this bill there is a general demurrer, filt
by part of tbe defendants, and a motion
dissolve tbe injunction already granted.
The only question in the oas1 is whether tl
parties are entitled to any relief in this cour
upon the case made by the bill. This questic
is two fold: first, whether the plaintiffs bave
case of equity, second, whether this court ht
jurisdiction of the controver t between th
plaintiff and defendi?te
It is not claimed tbat tbe transfer of share
sequestered and sold under tbe authority c

sive title to the defendants. It bas been r<
peatedly decided, both by the Circuit Court
and by the Supreme Court of tho Unite

court. Wc do not agroe to this view. It i
not denied that if tho compuny had retuned t<
institute proceedings tbe stockholders niigb
do so. lhere is no principle of equity admin
islration which doilies to a stockholder protec
tion in a Ccurt of Equity. Ic is true tbat tin
corporation represoius the corporate interests
and in this case it would, perhaps, be most ip
propriate that the cori oration should bring i
suit for its own protection, and for the protec
tion of tho rights of the original stockholders
But it has at least uoglocted and omitted to Jc
BO. Under such circumstances any siockbola?i
may procee i. We think the bill filed in tbii
case by tin plaintiff for his own benefit, am1
tor tho benefit of his co-stockholders, is prop
erly conceived, and that upon the case made
by it, tho plaintiff is entitled to the rebel
aske.l. The demurrer must be overruled, anc
the niot'on to dissolve tho injunction must be
denied. The defendants will have leave tc
answer under tho rulo.
E. W. RAYNARD, EXECUTOR. VS. THE TJNTT2I
STATES COTTON COMPANY.
Several quos iona of much iuterest were
Tory well a id very earnestly argued ia this
cns 'j upon all of which, except one, we shall
refrain from expressing an opinion, since the
decision of that ono must d .-termine the con?
troversy be I ore ll*.
Willi a view to the commencement of a suit
against thc United States Cotton f'ompanv, a
corporation creal od by the laws of No ?York,
and having its principal placo of business iu
New Ycrk, process was sued out against thc
United States Sea Island Cotton Company.
This process was returned with an acceptance
ot service by tho au'ont of thc United States
Cotton Company having charge of its bu?incss
in South Carolina endorsed upon it.
Thero was n > other ser vic J before thc com?
pany, nor did the company ever appear to the
Bint. Every step taken in it was by the plain?
tiff aloud, and against thc defendaul os iu de?
Tho fundamental question in tho case is,
berefore, was tho United States Cotton Com?
pany mado a party to the suit by the accept?
ance of servico bv its agent ?
No proof of authority to tho agent to accept
servico of procaas iu behalf of thc company is
in tho case. Acceptance, th crotore, his uo
other legal effect than simple service upon tho
It see ni pd tobe admittec M -t thc Cotton
Compuny was transacting a very considerable
business in South Carolina, and it was argued
that service upon ils agent enstruded with
tbe management of this business must be re?
garde! as servies upon the company.
But supposo a partnership iu New York do?
ing business in South Carolina, coald that
partnership be made amenable to a snit at law
in South Carolina, by service on its agent here?
If tbe case of a corporation it must bo iu
tb is. tbat it is even less habh to be sued di?
rectly in any other State than tbat by whose
laws it exists and sots.
This view does not leave the plaintiff without
remedy. He may bring his action of trespass
to try title against any one whom be finds ia
possession ot the land, or, if he find it unoccu?
pied, may take possession under his claim of
title and put the adverte claimant to bis legal
The several motions made in behalf of the
plaintiff must be denied.
CAROLINE CARSON VS. ALEXANDER ROBERTSON
In this case the only question is as to par?
ties, and we are called upon to meet it at the
threshold. The objection of the want of par?
ties may be taken at any time in the progress
of a canse, and even in the appellate coutt.
The objection will be disregarded whenever
taken, if it appears that tbe parties aro not
necessary, or if, although convenient and un?
der some oren :i st anees necessary, thoy cannot
be made, without depriving the court ot juris?
diction. On the other hind, when it appears that
no final decree can be made without material
prejudice to the interests ot parties not before
I he co ort, the court will not proceed without
them, even though such pardos are beyond
the reach of its process, or cinnot be made
without ousting the jurisdiction.
These are general rules, and they apply to
courts' of the United States as rally as to the
courts of the States. In administering these
rules, however, the coupe of the United States
are always careful to see that no citizen of a
>stat3, other than that in which the defendants
reside, shall invoke their jurisdiction in vain,
unless it is obviously impossible to protect the
interests of the absent defendants in their de?
crees. Th; only question here is whether
there is any such obvious impossibility in this
case. It is objected, in the first placo, that
the partners of the defendant, McBurney, are
indispensable parties. But it is plain upon
the bill ?nd answer that in all the transactions
.tv h i h form the subject of litigation, Mr. Mc?
Burney represented the firm, and we perceive
nu good reason why he may not bs held to
represent them in this suit. Most of these
partners can come in and become parties to
the bill, if they desire to do so. If they do
not, it will bo because they think their inter?
ests already adequately represented. *
The court will not regard tho absence of
parties where interests are competently ie pre?
sented as an obstacle to doing justice by a de
ciee between the parties actually before it.
The other objection is, that Elias N. Ball,
though named as a party in the bill, bas not
been served with procese. It is the same
objection SB the other-namely, want of an
indispensable party. This gentleman, it seems,
bought the property in litigation of the ex?
ecutors of Wm. ?. Carson. He gave his bond,
secured by mortgage upon the property, for
the purchase money. Subsequently, dating the
war. be sold to McBurney, and by ki rangement
ber ween himself. McBurney and the executors,
McBurney paid the amount due the execu?
tors upon the bond io Con federate notes, and
they thereupon surrendered the bond and dis?
charged the mortgage. Subsequently and since
the war, Ball, lt seems, bas gono into bank?
ruptcy. Under these circumstances we do not
perceive that Ball in a necessary party. It docs
not appear that either hp or his assignee in
bankruptcy have any interests which will be
prejudiced by a decree. At all events, as it
seems tous, a decree may be mad- so as todo
complete justice between the parties before the
court, ana at the sime time protect any rights
wbich he or, hie assignee may appear to have.
Wo cannot regard him, therefore, as a neces
We do not express this opinion without
some hesitation, but our best judgment
is that it will receive the highest sanc?
tion should the case go to tho Supreme Court.
Whether this be so or uot, it would be
a noBitive wron? in this, court to turn
from its doors a suitor in another State
seeking a remedy against citizens in this
State, and thus deny to her a right secured
by the constitution, apon a doubtful q cation
in reference to parties. We would follow rath?
er the example of Judge ??tory, that great light
of equity jurisprudence, and strain a point in
lavor of the constitutional right of citizens of
the several States, to sue tho citizens of other
states in thc courts of tho United States, lt
is a right too clear and too important to bo
We shall, therefore, overrule the objection
on account of want of parties and continae the
oaso for answer, lt is no small satisfaction to
know that any error we may now fall into will
be corrected by a higher court.
The coutt then adjourned until ll o'clock
A COTTON FACTORY FOR DARLING
lu another column of THC NEWS will bo found
a notice tl:at application will bc made for a
charter for a cotton factory on Black Crock,
near Dove's Depot. Ibis is the first effort that
lins been made Tot a cotton factory on that
stream, although thc idea is not a new ono.
Alluding to the new project u correspondent
writes to Hie Darlington Democrat over the
signature ol "Progress," as follows :
I believe tho day is not lar in the futuro,
when Black Crock will have a factory ot avery
accessible point, ns it lias many advantages
over many other streams. It is healthy at any
point-is convenient to transpiration-rans
through thc moat attractive section of country
m the Suite, and ia a reliable stream at any
season of the year, which is of vast importance
in manufacturing. It would bc a very serious
matter to tho stockholders for their milla to
stand idle, and four or five hundred operatives
waiting for rain. Black Creek would not suffer
tins ruinous inconvenience A cotton factory
at the point about to apply for a charter would
probably at this time Le the most desirable
location, owing to the convenience of transpor?
tation. It would not even be at the expense of
a dray. Cars on tho Churaw and Darlington
Railroad could be loaded and unloaded (rom
the door. Taking in consideration other
similar advantages, a factory at this point
could compete with any portion of thc world
With capital and men of energy there would
bc uo ia, I ure. Factories pay at I he North, and
herc we have the advaulage of climate-length
of days-transportation-rents or a very large
capita: invested in tho power. The saving in
light required in a large factory at such times
in the year, necessary to work out the ten
hours per day, would be a largo item. The
fuel to warm a large factory, not necessary
here, is another item. I will not attempt to
poiut out another advantage, in manufacturing
our own cotton. We ship oar cotton to
Charles on and from there to all paris of the
world. In Charleston the drayage, wharfage,
commissions. & -., rubs off something for t nao
city, New York the same, and the same in Eu?
rope or any o her point on its way to thc fac?
tory. For all we consume, wo then have to
pay tho manufacturers a good profit, with all
his taxes attached, in running thc gauntlet
bacE to us. In addition to all thc above, over
again, it has to ht-lp pay enormous rents-city
and many other taxes-clerk biro, profits, &c.
Of he wholesale dealer. These expenses would
give stockholders here a good profit.

summoned to tue Heavenly city. A kind Providence
had so arranged it that bis much loved partner of

been changed from this earthly frame to the body

the blood of Jesus, whom be did strive' to serve
faithfully, his soul passed from earth to God peace?
fully and calmly. When asked if he had any mes
