A Macon corrrspondent of tho Augusts
Chronicle throw- some light upon thc secret
history of the Turner affair, and explains why
it was that the arrest and examination were so

whom she obtained the forged bills of the First
National Bank of Kew Jersey. Toe reason of
thia recall of Marian Hains to Aiiauta for ex?
amination there, bas never boen accounted for.
I think thu I cm explain it fully.
On tbe Fnduy aueruoo.i that Lieutenant
Purcell lefi atlanta wi'.u Harris it became
known to a fewpeiaO-iS ia the ring that she
had or woa:d implicate limier, on ber exam?
ination in Augusta, mallock aud <>ther friends
of Turner determined to get Harris out ot
Purcell's possession tor tbe purpose of influ?
encing ber to keep silent as to i'urner. Ibis
5 cou d be best ac-omplshed by having her
brought back to At tanta. Able counsel were,
employed and some man pn;attons cf United
States' officials practiced, and the result was an
order by telegraph from the acting Uuited
8Utes*marshal directed io Purcell at Union
Point, on tbe Georgia Railroad, directing him
to leturn immediately with Ins prisoner to At?
lanta. When the tr*iu reached Union Point
At 12 o'clock Friday night, Pureed found the
telegram there, ordering him to return. This

immediately to Atlanta and see the woman
Harris, i'o deceive Parcel), lim Murphy and
others, who were really anxious to have justice
done and to see the woman and Turo er com
muted, they were informed that Turner had
been arrested, and that he and the woman
Hams would be examined and committed ou
In the meantime other United Slates offi?
cials were placed in charge of Harris, and the
process of manipulation began. Sharp lawyers
were taken to ber in the interest of 'i tu?
ner, and free and full communication was al?
lowed between them and HatriB. What wat.
aud and done at these repeated interviews
and consultations can be readily divined by
the resalta whioh followed. The sh m inves?
tigation was had and Harris discharged on
straw bail for $1500, Tamer returned to Ma
eon tully secure that the storm had passed.
The arrest and examination of Harris brought
other parties on the scene. An official of the
Treasury Department was close.v watching
the proceedings, and became folly Batis?ed
that both Harris and Turner were legally
guilty, and at bis instance Harris was again
arrested and commuted. Ho had mada other
disoeveries which were important, and winch
required bis presence for some days in Macon.
Several months since some of tbe getminj
plates in the Treasury Department at Wash?
ington bad been stolen. These were the plates
used for the prining of the tweuiy-five cent
and fifty cent postal currency. As your read?
ers are aware the signatures to these notes
are engraved wi m the balance of tue note. Tbe
possession of tbe genuine plates would onablc
the party having them to strike off real gtnnit>e
currency in every respect exactly lik? that is?
sued by the Treasury Department. When these
plates were stolen a reward of ten thousand
dollars was effered by the co vern men t for their
reccery. Suspicion fell at the time upon the
horde of carpet-baggers and scalawags thoo in
Washington from the South urging farther
Kascriptive measures against this section.
t? ctivtjs were set to work, and whilj pur
Buing the lrail the arrest of Harria occurred.
Developments growing out of her trial led to
the be-ief that Turner, bwayz-j, and other
Georgia Radicals, were tbe guilty parties. Ef?
forts were redoubled to secure the ' plates."
lt was soon discovered tbat a large q entity of
new currency of the twenty-five ana fifty cent

Pox tho purpose of concealing their object
and movements, it was necessary tbat Tur?
ner's fears should be qaie ed. and tbat tbe
woman Harria ?hould b3 closely confined and
deprived of communication with outsider*, and
particularly with Turner and Swayzo. Blodgett
?.nd others of the ring. Very soon evidence
wis ob'atned whioh satisfied this officer that
the ''plates" were in Macon and had tx-en used
here. A number of the bills issued here were
discovered, and hopes at one lime indulged
that the place of secretion of the pi?tee found

office, and a trap bad been set to catch bim,

Harris was s gain discharged from custody,
and the arrest of Turner could no longet be de?

proper discharge of Harris, who. under the in?
fluence, if not tbe positive directions ot Bat

I have tbe best reason for believing that the
Post office and the Treasury Departments at
Washington were satisfied of the guilt of both
Turner and Swat zs. and that oltiei leading
Radicals in the State known as the Blodgett
ring, were as deep m the mad as Turner and
8wayz3 were in tbe mire. Tbe effect upon tho
Radical party of a conviction of its mont trust?
ed leaders in this State would have been ter?
ribly damaging. Suoh a catastrophe would
r .in the party ni the entire -South and bring it
into disgrace in the North and West. Hence
it was determined to relieve ruiner and stop
the investigado.! against Swayze. To moro
surely effect the latter purpose, the detective
McNeil, who was working ap the c te? was
summarily dismissed from offiie. And it is

the new man. But that was a little matter.
The moukey mees somet mes select their
leaders by the length ot their tails. Louis

helping him into hia carriage. Then Grant
imposes upon us wu h other pretensions. He

government has so constantly thrown himself
in tho way of the people. A triumphal proces?

since the war has bien the least ot it. As
President, be is pushing bis social preroga?

fourteen weeks since the adjournment of Co 1

here, the rest in social unbending elsewuere.
They say he takes gaily to the dance at Long

glibly than at Annapolis and West Point. lois
is vt-ry well; but the country is asking of him
and bis Cabinet a few serious questions that it
would be well to hive answered from Wash?
ington, reception balls at the seashore not
withstanding. What about Cub*, bout h Amer?
ica, Virginia, the South, th? Alabama matters,
and political assassinations ?
It is credible that the Cabinet and the head
of the nation, properly digesting these things,
wonld not find much time to be absent brum
the capital. Anyhow, the nation is anxious to
see looming above the rosy horizon of babs,
routs, excursions, banquets, receptions and
seaside frivolities, the executive hand of a
nowerful Repuulican administration. We are
hardly contented with thia spbinx-liae policy, lt
my bu Delphic, as sheila berger said, but is
lo*s i liai. Republican. The President would do
well to ucoeDt humility from the Cabinet ficixco.
and consult the peoole henceforth. A m. mb.ir
of the Grant family is reported to have re?
marked, just alter the Domination: "It was
the General's desire not to Le made President,
by a party, but by the peoDle " Perhaps here
is a little light. Pernaps Gran* believes that
the "era of good feeling '' mav return again un

under whose legs all the people eau walk.

as dangerous, as she herself considered him,
no sooner saw the coffra p'ace J in her hus -

stable armed with a pair of pistols and shot the
dangerous steed through the head. On one
occisi?n the Count was asked by a friend, a

trod on ber dress and tore it. She asked for a

You Giblcnz, who cannot fenco, to a duel
with pisto a. rho latter was accepted and on thc
morning of the lit or July the duel took place on
the beautiful Rosenthal, near Leipsic. At tho

at shooting, wa- wounded iu tho fool. Tho

ready to withdraw his challenge if Grossminn

Grossmann rcfj-ed lo do, and at the second
fire You Gablenz received a siiot from Gross

took the wounded student to the etty hospital,

the bill from You Gjblenz's brain, and on the

-A queer story is told of a blind beggar in
Pans, who is always to he found ensconced ia
a eatewaj ou thc Boulevard Sebastopol. A
certain 1'arisian often pa-sed that way, and
was in the babil of giving him a penny-a two
sous pi ce; but tho other dav. Ly mistake, ho
dioppod imo the poor follow'j hat a double
louis of foi ly lrancs. Some nmn afterwards he
discovered his mistake, and off ho ran to tLe
Boulevard Sebastopol to get buck hw mouey.
Ko bogs ar was there, bu in his p'ace a cr:p
ple. "Where is the blind man ?'* said the be?
neroleiit mau. "DJ you in eua Monsieur Ueu

qnirei to tue address indicated whic't be soon
found. "Monsieur Benjamin here ?" he sa} s
to thc concierge. "All right; second
floor; door to thc nn'ht;'' was the an?
swer. He mounted the stairs, rang at
the door. A nicely dressed servant
ca?a? to open it. " llonsieur Be. jamiu

elegant ante-room, through w itch ene cculd
sec into a dining-room, where there nasa
table admirably appointed with rino white
luicu, crystal aud bilrer. I- seemed as if there
must bs an error; but there waa Lille time to
consider; the mud cime quickly to say that
Monsieur Benjamin would bi glad to ?ce bia
visitor, and at the sarao h.-taut 6li0 opened
the dOf?r of an apartment luruishe i i:i Turkish
fashion, in winch the blind man, smiling, was
seeti sitting on a d.van. ' Y .u wished to speak
toni.-?' he said. "Yes, fudecd, sir," replied
our friend, rather embarrassed; "I am very
BOTT to trouble you, but the fact is-I believe- I
I ratlier think-that in passing aloug thc
B lul.-vatd ."Sebastopol this morning, I gave rcu
JJ mistake two louis for two sous." Tba blind
man said, with the utmost oo!nes3, ? That is
quite pos ible; I have not looked at the cash
ye: ; and if there is a mistake, nothing is easier
thaa to rectify il." He rang a bell, which was
answered by tbe maid. "Ask II. Ernest," be
said, "if io tbe receipts or this morning be bas
found a piece of forty francs." The piece was
there; the maid fetched it, and, at the bidding
of her master, presented it on a tray of Chinese
lac to his visitor. The visitor pounced upon
bis coin, and without more ado proceeded to
take leave. "Pardon, sir," said the blind man;

THE COKLNQ SOLAR ECLIPSE.
The solar eclipse of Saturday next will be
total along a narrow track ot only about one
hundred and forty miles wide, extending in a
southeasterly direction, and more than six
thousand miles long. It begios in Siberia,
where it takes a northeasterly course till it
croasses a little south of Behrings Straits,
after whioh it turns its course southeasterly,
traversing portions of Alaska, thence into
British America, and through Montana. Dako?
tan, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, In?
diana, Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and
North Ci roi i na, ending in the Atlantic Ocean,
off the coast of the last-mentioned State. In
most parts of the United Bta.es the observa?
tion will only cover five-sixths of tbe son's
disc. It will be only par.ial in Charleston, and
will continue from five o'clock until a few min?
utes before seven o'clock P. M.
It is said by Washington astronomers that
'.no total eclipse of the sun has been visible in
aoy considerable portion of this country since
1834. and none will be visible after this year
during the present ceotury." Ia tbese times
the aslromers, instead of waiting patiently at
their observations for the eclipso to approach
them, which it may do ii the course of centu?
ries, have acquired the habit of taking their
observations to the central line of the echpse.
Ou this occasion scientific parties will RO to
various points along the hne, some sent by the
United States Government and some by pri?
vate enterprises, to study interesting problems
relative to the sun's physical constitution. To
those who are able to visit the line, or within
the limits of visibility of the total phase, it
will be a spectacle, if the sky is clear, worth
travelling a great distance to behold. The
Riverside Magazine for August bas for a leading
illustration a tinted representation of the ap?
pearance of the earth and sky at the time of
the total obscuration. From the letter-press
description we take the following sketch of j
this most wonderful sight :
r'or the convenience of snob of onr readers
as live wiibiu tbe be. t of country referred to on
the fourth page of this number, where will be
witnessed on the 7th instant, the total eclipse
of the sun, we give a short description of'be
phenomena to be expected. Perbans some
may have sufficient presence of mind to make
brief notes of what they see. If so, wo shall
be happy to receive tbe resal's of Bach obser?
vations tor comp tn son, and possible publica?
tion in a future number. As regards tbe ap?
pearances under the heads tbtec and five, a
spy-glass or email telescope will be necessary
to reveal them to satisfaction.
1. When the sun is more than three-fourths
hidden by the dark d ec of the moon, a per?
ceptible gloom is thrown ou the land cape
around. Soon alter tho sky appears to de
see, ?d, the horizon to contract, the temperature
ol the air falls, birds cease their sloe lng, flow?
ers close, an unearthly greenish and reddish
light is imparted to portions of the sky, a sud?
den darkness eusues and everything wears a
mysterious and gloomy aspect.
2. Immediately before the last trace of the
sun's disc disappears, the a vful shadow of
the moou in tho air.may he detected rapidly
approaching fi om tho west like a dark column
or sornbrp cloud. To witness this impressive
sight care must be exercised, lest, in the ex?
citement of the moment, thc- swiftly approach?
ing Bindow be unheeded.
3. The last thread of light from tho sun's
diae s. metimos appears to separate into little
grains or beads b.-fore us total disappearance.
This phenomena has received tho name of
"Baily Beads." trom the noted astronomer who
first witnessed it.
i. Instantly on the extinction of the Bun will
be soon the graudest feature of tho eclipse
the corona, or crown of light, issuing on all
sides apparently from the purple-black disc of
the moon, though in reality fio n tho sun. lt
is tho atmosphere of the son rendered visible
by tbe absonce of tho overpowering sunlight.
As the light is dazzlingly whito, a picea of j
smoked glass will enable y ou to survey it with?
out the inconvcnio'ice which might otherwise
5. In tho corona, and ?.-sumer also apparent?
ly from the dark moon, there will appear seve?
ro) rose-colored flames projecting beyond the
gloomy disc, perhaps a lentil of the diameter
of the moon. They, too, belong to tbe sun.
and are demonstrated by the spectroscope to
ba mc4nd scent hydrogen. With every eclipse
they vary in size, bum brr, shape, position and
depth of color.
G. Planets ind larg-' stirs aro o'tea noted
duting total eclipses by those who have previ?
ously studied their positions oi a celeeMal
map. As the darkness hardly exceeds that of
a moonlight night, they are uot always readily
found in 'he two or three ron utes of gloom
that attend the entire i?bscaratiou ot tho sun.
By a little study of the map at tho commence?
ment of this number ono may b" ablo to re?
cognize the mos: cons; icuous planets and stars
lint will be visibio.
When tho PU ti reappe ars the phenomenon
of Daily's Bends shou.d be again looked for
this time on the right side of the moon's disc.
The awfiilshtd >w will attorwards he seen sail?
ing rapidly away in the air to tho < astward
Then follow tlie changes of color in the sky
and landscape tho rising oi ibo thermometer
and a ronera I awakening of nature, and tho
wonderful exhibition is over.

citizens of Charleston, that their present hand en
irlne ls very much out of repair and will require a
large outlay of money to put lt in a good working
condition. They tee! satisfied that lt would be a use?
less expenditure of money to repair a hand engine at
this time, especially when steam takes precedence
over that which requires manual labor. Tho engine
now In use has been in active service tor over
In conxideration of the above ?tated facts, tb?y
bava resolved to purchase a substantial steamer,
locateil in one of tbe largest snd wealthiest warda or
the city, Ward No. 4 They feel confident that the
services of such a steamer would be much more re?
quisite than a hand engine in times of conflagration,
and for th t purpose the j have concluded to appeal
to our cltlzons for std to carry out their planr. It
has been a long Mme since this company has called
upon the public for assistance, from the very fact,
that at the Mme they procured tbe present eugine,
more than one-half the amount wis taken from Its
treasury to mate the purchase.
ihe io.losing Committee have been appointed to
canvass the various Words ot the city to solicit s ib
Fcrlptions from such of our citizens a- appreciate
