While 8pain does not reject the mediation,
there are serions obstacles in the way of an

eventually pass from Soaniah control. It is
stated that Spain demands, as a preliminary,
that the Cubans lay down their arma, which, it

no guarantee of protection from the volun?

TO THE KDITOB OF THE NEWS.
I beg the use of your columns for tbe pur?
pose of exposing certain improper nels perpe?
trated by some of that pany who now bold
position in this Stato-once hold only by men ot
honor and distinction-ar.d also for tho pur?
pose ot correcting misrepresentations mauo by
ono of their clan, who. singularly enough, aa
snme8 tho nigh-aouuding norn de plume of
"Veritas," as if there could possibly be truth
among such a swoet-scontedparty.
The Lamons Railroad was chartered a num
bar of j cara ago, and conducted until the closo
ol the late war by a president and board ot
directors. Ab that time, however, it was found
impracticable to run tho road as formerly, and
it fell a prey io tho garrisons of United States
troops, which, from time to time, occupied
Laurens Comrtheuse. But even tbeso toou
discontinu d i is use, and tho road was virtually
abandoned for the spaoa of several months.
Darin? that per OJ it became to be considered
public property. Its depots were abused; its
rolling stook subjected to tho most fldgraut
and indecent vi?lenos; its cross-tics aud string- J
era torn ap, and freely need as firewood. In?
deed, a portion of one of ils tressels was cul
a*ay, at the imminent peril of the whole struc?
In this emergoncy, I, as president of the
road, with tho board of directors, concluded
it to be advisibfoto lease the road to any re?
sponsible individual who would ruo it and re
taro it to us, at the expiration of a stated
period, in running order. The offer was, there?
fore, published in various journals of this und
other States; bat, on tho dev for the reception
of proposals, no one made us au overture. I
then, seeing the impossibility of the road be- j
ing managed by itsregular director?, and bc- I
ing convinced of its imp >rtance to Laurens |
District, proposed to undertake the conduct cf j
lt myself. My proposition was unanimously I
agreed to. I accordingly obtained a lease of j
tho road foi thc period of five years. I prc-1
ceeiod, at groat tioublo and expense to my?
self, to carry out the terms of this lease, and
have continued ap to this timo to run a tri?
weekly train regularly for the transportation
of passengers and freight, and a daily freight
tram whenever it became necessary. I have
not profited myself; I have not squandered tbe
small resources of the road; I have not taxed
the patrons of tbe road. I have restored the
road-bed, formerly very defective; I have re- I
paired trestles, .at ono time positively dan?
gerous; I have kept tho depots itt order; I j
have added to tho effective- rolling stock; 11
have afforded transportation to passengers !
and freight far more cheaply than was done
darin tr tbe sus pf aa ion of the io ul. The
charge of ''Ventas" .'s, therefore, as false and
stupid as we should expect from Locomotive
Scott, Cylinder Crews, and that ilk.
Bat to the matter immediately under discus?
sion. A. M. Brodie and John W. 8. Arnold ob?
tained, uot long ago, judgments in the United
States Court against the Laarens Railroad.
Under tbeso judgments levy was made, and
the rolling stock of the road sold at auction on
the first Monday in Aoril last. The great salos
mm and ubiquitous Joseph Crews was there,
and did himselt the pleasure of bMdiog in that
property tor the righteous Robert E. Scott as
Governor of Sooth Carolina, according to tho
statement of the veracious "Veritas," and on
bis own responsibility, without a word of direc
tiou from the slid Robert E., either as an indi?
vidual or aa Governor. Why such sale and
Parchase were made I am at a loss to dis?
cover; for there existed mortgages from the
road to tbe State of Sooth Carolina and the
Bank of tho State, executed ia 1859, which
would far moro than cover ail thc rolling stock
that ever sharp-eyed Joseph and righteous Dr.
Scott could scent ont.
I wrote to his Excellency-the self-sacri?
ficing Governor-to know by what authority his
agent interfered with my lease. To this he re?
plied through bis secretary, Joba Heart, as fol?

Crews, aud that be is now acting under bia

JOHN HUABT, Private Secretary.
It is difficult to determine what is most coo- j
spicuous in this document-good sense, g. od
rhetoric or good grammar. But whatever it
be io these respects, it is a fiat contradiction
of "Veritas," from which it appears that one
of the two bas been guilty of gross falsehood.
For ..Veritas" says that tho purchase was
made without Scott's knowledge, for tho bene?
fit of the State aud in the na mo of the Gov?
ernor. Heart says bj was made in Scott's in?
dividual name, and that Scott's object ct the
tune was, -tc, plainly showing that Scott had
i atended tho p ircha-.e. Heart says that Scott
purchased the whole road; but it is reason?
able to suppose that tho old man had just
returned from a dining party, and by reason
thereof forgotten that railroads are not thrown
in when one purchases a locomotive. As
:o his Excellency's object there caD be no
doubt, of course; all carpet-baggers aro known

I desire, lastly, to reply to a chirge prelcr
red, partly if not wholly, agaiuat rae by "Veri
t is. ' It is in regard to the disposal of proper
? r belonging to thc Laurena Railroad His
si at (.mont is utterly false, from beginning to
end, as I can establish by all tho officers of the
road, who have bad opportunity to boco ne a>
qu tinted with those things. I did exchange,
on some occasions., worn-out castings of my
road with the Greenville aud Columbia Rail?
road, but exchanged them for new ones, which
I at once applied to thc Laurens Road. The
cyliadera mentioned by "Verit?t?" as fraudu?
lently disposed of by me and patchaaed by the
patriotic Joo Crews, were Dot sold, nor pre?
vented from sale by tho patriot aforesaid, nor
ever destined for anything beyond exchange
with tho Greenville and Columbia Railioad for
repairs upon the engine of this road. Those
cylindera were uot detached from ai engine
on the road, but belonged to an engine explod?
ed years ago, which could Dot bo repaired
which, ot course, lett them useless to tho road.
Indeed, far from waiting what I found
on the road, I repaired ita cars, al?

wrcoks ? f one condemned and oast aside,
strengthened its trestles, renewed the wood
and iron work on the road. and. in ebert, ad?

on the line knows. ''Veritas" is. therefore,
wilfully and maliciously false, and would be

BLACKVILLE, September 2.-A mooting of the
merchants of Blackville and the planters of
the vicinity was held on Tuesday night, at thc
Market Hall. The Intendant of tho town, M.
F. Melony, Esq.. was called lo tho chair, and
Captain W. D. McMillan requested to act as
secretary. E. 51. Carroll, Esq., on behalf of
the planters, presented tho fallowing memo?
Whereas, It i? evidently beyond disputo that
co'ton and other orodiice brought into mar?
ket for s le at a lato hour of the night, bv
irresp nsible persons, is dishonestly obtained;
and, whereas, parties DuichaMing tho same
under such oircurastaucos should bc held re?
sponsible by the community; therefore, we tho
citizens and planters of this vicinity do hereby
request that the merchants of Blackville do
organize among themselves some plau by
which the farmers mav bc protected, and this
great evil ot illicit traffic abated.
The following note was received from Dr. W.
8. Reynolds, read ooforc tho meeting, and on
motion ordered to be printed with the proceed?
FAIE MOUNT PLANTATION, August 31,18G9.
Messrs. W. H. Neeels and W. P. McMillan:
UESTLEMEX-Your noto, inviting me to the
meeting at Blackville this evening, has boon '
duly received, and, as circumstances are such
that I Bhall not be able to attend, I adopt this
method of expressing to you my conviction of
tbe great importance of the meeting, and the
praiseworthy efforts of the gentlemen who
have originated it. The stealing of cotton by
negroes, and selling it to dtsboucsl wbito nen,
bas become so great an evil that no honest
man can regard it but with feelings of indigna?
tion. I regard it as a dtsgraco to any com?
munity that considers itself a deceno one.
that any white man should be tolerated
in it who would be so mean and 'mer?
cenary as to instigate negroes to plun?
der the fields of their neighbor?, and re?
ceive from them tho articles they have stolen.
Yet unfortunately tbeie are somo few who will
do that, and I regard it as a duty which the
honest merchants owe to themselves to show
io the world that they will do everything in
their power to put down^he /ile practice-one
that is corrupting and encouraging to thieves,
discouraging to honest laborers, and engen?
ders feelings of bitterness on tbe part Oi tho
planters towards those whom they would
otherwise regard with kindness. Your meet?
ing is a most laudable and important one, and
is calculated to do great good both to tho
whites and the colored people, and I sincerely
hope it will organize thc means that will bc
effectual. With respect, yours trulv,
W. S. REYNOLDS.
The following resolution was tbeu offered by
Mr. J. A. Birckmyor, unanimously carried,
and subscribed to by tuc merchants of tho
Wc, the merchants of Blackville iu order to
guard as far as possible jpainst the great evil
of purchasing cotton ma other prod ace that
may bo illegally gottoo possession of. do hereby
agree and bind ourselves not to purehaso cot.
ton aud other produco betweeu the hours of
eight o'clock at night and daylight 4ft the
morning; and we furthermore piedlo ourselves
to use every effort to discover aDd expose any
persons who may engage in such illicit traffic.
Ou motion, lt WM ordered that tho proceed?
ings bo furnished for publication ia thu Senti?
nel and Journal. M. F. MOLONY, Chairman.
W. D. MCMILLAN, Secretary.
Considering the above determined and man?
ly course of the merchants of this place piuisc
worthy, and as au important stop towards thc
correction of a most ucfancus practice, I soud
you a copy of the proceedinrs. May we uot
trust"tint thia initiatory step miy be tho inau?
guration ot a movement which will spread
throughout tbe State, aud be tho means of ac?
complishing incalculable good. As an instance
in proof of thc extent to which this evil is car?
ried, I wdl say that one of tho planters prcseut
stated that, to the best of his belief and infor?
mation gained from a close examination, ho
had already lost by stcalage from his fiolds,
this year, at least one bale of cotton.

- A hornblo mystery is agitating society*in
Naples. Tho panics connected with it are a
licutcnautnamod Negri and tho Countess da
Navara. Negri had some papers belonging to
the countess, and she went to San Paolo to ob?
tain them. After she had been there two or
thiee d ij s her landlord heard cries for help, and
rushed up to her ronni. Negri ran out of thc^
door as th-? landlord 'entered. The couutess
appeared greatly moved, and told thc landlord
that Negri had endeavored to force her to
write a lotter to her friend stating that she
had committed suicide. On her hesitating
to do this, bc snatched a dagger from her
hind, which tho carried for self-defence, and
was in the act of striking her when she fled to
another room, followed by her maddened lover.
Thc dagger was again uplifted, when the foo -
step? of the landlord seemed to para'yze him, |
ace] be made bis escape. On tbe next
day several camby officers, beariDg of the af?
fair, came to tho boase to protect tbe coun?
tess, who determined to return to Voghera.
Two officers and the landlord accompanied
hor as far as Caaerta, where they left her, the
couutess refusing their society any farther,
adding that she no longer had any fear. On
tho train arriving at Isolctta, the station on
