WASHINGTON, September 14 -The last com?

War supersedes the ad interim commission,

General Sherman niling both the offices of
Secretary of War and General of the army, the

receive. Indeed, it is now held by prominent
officials that there is no law of the United

AFFAIRS IN MARION.
C ourt-Clearing thc Criminal Docket
The Che ra OT and Coalfields Railroad
Case-A Godsend for the Quid Knnra
Crops-The Birds and the Caterpillar?,
(FROM OOR OWN CORRE-FONDEST. ]
MARION COUBTHODSE, Tuesday, September
14.-The fall or September term of our court
began on Monday, 6th instant. During the
past week the only business transacted was
the trial of eight or ten cases of misdemeanor
and one of felony. Some of our pugnacious
brethren are to pay the county small ennis fer
disfiguring the head gear, of their fellow
citizens, sod others will be allowed time for
solitary reflection upon the difference between
meum and teum. Tho court sits from 9 A. M.
till 3 P. M., and Judge Rutland seems disposed
to clear off our criminal docket as rapidly as
possible. During the oosumc week there will
be tried one case of murder, another of biga
my, and several parties for minor crimee.
. Our juries include every element-Caucan
sion, African, and tho compromise between
these extremes; but it mud be said in justice
to them that they seem io have tho determi?
nation to vindicate the law and punish offend?
ers. They will have work enough during this
and the following week.
Yesterday, at Chambers, Judge Rutland
heard Major T. G. Barker's argument on the
motion for a rule to show cause why a writ of
quo loarranto should not issoe against D. B.
Townsend, president of the Cheraw and Coal?
fields Railroad Company, (or Ob?ra wand Salis?
bury Railroad Company, as it is termed by
opposing counsel) and of the directors ofthat
company. This motion, if granted, will re?
quire President Towneend and the directors,
named in the motion, to show by what au?
thority they hold the offices of president and
directors of that company. If this be insuf?
ficient, the writ will issue-the cause be tried
b?jury-and ii a verdict be found for the re?
lators (the parties represented by Major
Barker) what is called judgment of ouster will
be given. If, on the other hand, ciuee is
shown, the case will go against the relators
and for the president and directors. Major
Barker's argument was forcibly logical, and
did justice to his legal reputation. The op?
posing counsel will be beard this afternoon at
5 P. M. They are Messrs. Harllee, Hudson
and S. J. Townsend. The case excites much
interest, and gives our village quid nuncs
something to discues.
Cotton is Buffering from rust in many places,
causing very serious loss. Caterpillars are re?
ported, but seem to do little harm. On one
plantation a flock of birds have utterly de?
stroyed them. The birds are believed to be
the common low-country rice birds, and are
rather strange waifs in this section. From all
accounts, the corn crop is- not more than half
the usual yield, if even as much as that. Some
favored few make largo crops, ?hile thoir
neighbors make scarcely anything. Planters
are, however, cheerful, as the cotton market
bas opened well, and a very excellent yield of
the staple is confidently expected. PEEDEE.
THE RABY BUSINESS.
Baby Farming in New York Cit y
Where, When, and How to Obtain a
Bab y-Christian Families Supplied
with lilue-Eyeil Babies on Demand.
The New York correspondent of the Phila?
delphia Telegraph write;:
Tb ) Philadelphia readers of tho New York
daily newspapers will probably, a* one timo or
other, have had their attention attracted to a
certain quarter of thc journal wherein parties
wishing to ac-'opt beautiful blue-eyed babier
could be accommodated upon reasonable terms.
Sometimes it is added tnat the adopting party
must be a professing Christian; but moro often
the advertiser casts aside all considerations of
faith and practice, and confines herself to
statements in regari to the reasonableness of
The blue-eyed baby-business is carried on to
a greater extent in New York than iii any other
city upon the American continent, lue num?
ber of blue-eyed babies that come to the sur?
face in the coln-us of the daily aud weekly presa
is immense. Baby farming is a regularly re?
cognized business in itself, and tho-c harpies
who cugage ia the ptofessioa are most suc?
cessful who port with the greatest number of
babies for t coneiderai iou.
There aro saveral of these baby-farmers ia
New York. Ono of them is in St. Mark's place,
where a t?male physician, in conjunction with
a malo one, undertakes to supply Christian
families with as many blue-eyed bauies as may
be desired. She never makes any charge, but
it is tacitly understood that babies ni various
degrees of blue-eyed beauty are to be procur?
ed from her at prices between $50 and $150.
Tho proprietress has a sharp eye, a shrewd
tongue, a loug head, and a short manner, and
is not capable ol being browbeaten. Another
one is on Third avenue, near to Stewart's, lt
is located over a shop, and pervaded with an
air ol intense respectability. Indeed, the "re?
spectability" of these places is theil most grati?
fying and salutary characteristic. The Hervant
who opens the door may look dowdy around
the hair and dirty arouDd the rieck, but she is
respectable: the parlor into which you aio
shown may have cemetery-like mouldiness of
atmosphere, suggestive of new-made graves,
but the pictures on the wall are scriptural in
subject, and the few ornaments are uniformly
correct and respectable; tho "ladv" who re?
ceives you ia generally attired in black bomba?
zine tas though she were a Rachel wooping for
other people'* children. ) but the respectability
of her appearance and language is one ol the
first things that strikes you. '.'bis Third ave?
nue establishment ie, howjver, more of OD
office than anything else. The real hospital
and nursery is "farther np town."
In Nineteenth-street is a third baby farm,
and these three are the principal ones of Goth?
am. From these issue most of the advertise?
ments which dupes, blessed with no children
of their own, and wishing to adopt those of
others, so readily answer. Scattered all over
the city are smaller ones, where the business
is less artistically conducted, and the police
descend upon, which renders a temporary
residence there extremely risky.
It is in holes like these that the nobodies'
children of New York, who somehow or other
are ..left over, 'and never adopted out, go
through protracted courses of ill-treatment,
which finally bring them to the grave. What?
ever sorrowful chance may have taken the
innocent visitor to such a house, he will have
remarked with inexpressible compassion the
old countenances of tbe withered and unhappy
little children that there abound. These are
the blue-eyed babies that the advertisements
run about, and which the female physician is
so desirous of adopting out into a Christian
family where they may experience the com?
forts of a home. Wretched children of nobody,
I am sure they need it; for the tender mercies?
of the woman on whose hands they are left are
sure, sooner or later, to conduct them to the
Some of these children escape death, how?
ever, by being sent to Randall's Island, whose
nurseries received during the year 1868 over
eleven hundred such children. Hero their
condition is at least a little better than under
the roof-tree of the venal friend who assisted
their mothers (at the rate of $25 per week ) tn
bringing them into the world. They receive
at' least some education. The girls are taught
sewing, and the boys get some inkling of
fanning. Thence, periodically, they are sent
West, and in a few years no small proportion
of the populatiou of the prairie-peopled West
will consist of the grown-up children of no?
body. At the same time, the condition of tho
iuvenile occupants of Randall's Island -those
little illegitimate ones-is nothing to brag of.
The nurses there who take charge ot the
younger children mix a ?reat deal of. their
milk of human kiuduefs with bad gin, ?nd
educate the innocents to a lovo of whiskey.
The mortality among the infant population is
extremol} large. Last year muco more than
one-half the entire number admitted died.
The various children's hospitals and other
cbaritable institutions for children established
in the city do something toward mitigating
this evil; but all the benevolence ITeaped to?
gether seems but as a drop in a bucket. It is
one of the great shames of New York that
there are such extensive facilities for the "pot?
ting away' of nobody's children, and one ot
the first steps towards reform should be the
abolishment of all such advertisements as the
blue-eyed baby ones. ALT BABA.
-Nearly four thousand persons starved to
death in the great City of London last year,
and yet tho amount of money raised for chari?
table purposes in that city is enormous.
-It is elated that three thousand tous of icc
are used in St. Thomas Hospital in Loudon
every year. Scarcely an amputation is per?
formed in any London hospital now-a-daye
without the U9e of ice, which is an efficient
agent in arresting hemorrhage.
-It is not generally kuown how important a

-Tbe custom of burning widows in India
revives thc moment the British rule relaxes.
The explanation of this custom is supposed to
bo tho faol that tb? permanent tenor of a Hin?

cooke for him even in the highest houses, will
not risk the honible life impoeed on a widow

-Apropos of the rumor that the Emperor's
confidence in M. Nelaton is beginning to
diminish, the Figaro tells us bow the great
surgeon first won his reputation at court.
When the Prince Imperial was so seriously ill
some three or four years ago, a consultation
of surgeons was held to diagnose a certain in?
flammation of the articulations of the thigh.
Nelaton said there was an abscess, but he was
alone in his opinion. This difference was of
the highest moment. If there was an abscess,
the knife alone could preserve tho patient's
life; if there was not, an operation might prove
fatal. Nelaton was allowed to have bis way;
the patient was put under ohloroioim, and tbe
surgeon took out his bistoury. The Emperor,
who was standing ne ir the table, walked to the
window, clasped his hands, and began a vigor?
ous tattooing with his knuckles. The knife
had reached the neighborhood of the articula?
tion with no result, and the surgeons opposed
in opinion to Nelaton begai to remind him of
what they bad said. Ihe Emperor walked up
to him and seized his hand. "Pardoo, sire,"
said Nelaton, removing his hand, "there is an
abscess," and with one resolute push he buried
the knife. A discharge took place, and the
child was saved.
-The Pope has settled the knotty question
of the ord ?r of precedence at the (Ecumenical
Couucil. The fir3t place, as a matter of course,
is awarded to the Cardinals us tho supreme
senate of the church. The hierarchy is then
divided into five categories, which take rank
in succession, namely : 1, the Patriarchs
2, the Primates ; 3, the Archbishops ; 4, the
Bishops of Dioceses ; and 5, the Bishops in
par ti bu e. The members of ea JU class will
have precedence, not according to the rank
of their See in the Episcopate, but accord
lug to the date of their consecration, so
that the latest consecrated prelate will
take the lowest placo in bis class. We
leam also from the Pall Mall Gazetto that
?be Pope has approved of the design submit?
ted to him by bis architect, for the monument
commemorative ot the Council. This will con?
sist simply of the column of African marble
from the emporium, raised on an hexagonal
base,which will be enriched on five of its faces,
with ba? reliefs, representing the five parts of
the world, while thc sixth face will bear thc
arms of Pius IX, and the date of the opening
and close of the Council. The column will bc
surmounted by a statue of Pius IX,pronouncing
tbe benediction MI bi tl orbi. A short time ag"
the Holy Father inspected the structures erect?
ing for the Council in St. Peter's, and evinced
the greatest intereU in every detail.
-A travelling correspondent of the New
York Tribune thus hits off in a paragragh the
peculiarities of Loudon and her people : " 1
take leave of London for the present with the
most agreeable recollections of her private hos?
pitality, and a deep impression of her physical
greatness and power. In no city that I have
seen is there such a display of commercial en?
terprise and substantial opulence. Her pros?
perity is the result of the accnmulated energy
of ages, and rests on a de?p foundation. The
public buildings, though not remarkable for
elegance, Lave an air of massive grandeur. The
shops and warehouses have little external glit?
ter, but Beemed organized for use and durabil?
ity. The Englishman in loudon is a model of
self-satisfaction, personal dignity, and care aod
finish in all Eis appointments. As a rule, he is
dressed with'mofe fastidious propr iety than the
Parisian, though he often affects brighter
colors and a bolder tone. His tailor h? a more
accomplished artist than that ot' the French?
man, be wears cloth of a better quality, and
rejoices in boots and gloves of more unim?
peachable accuracy. The man of busineee in
London seldom shows tho negligence n
costume which prevails on week-days in New
York. He usually makes his appearance in the
street with nicely fitting gloves, broadcloa h
of an eminently aristocratic cast, a stiff and
shining black dress hat, and a cravat, often of,
as miny colors as the coat of Joseph, and
made with a most superfluous waste of silk.
Altogether, bo gives you the impression of a
well fed, thoroughly tended, and high con?
ditioned animal, full of healthy blood, re?
joicing in the possession of all bis faculties,
never troubled with weak nerves or erratic
fancies, slow in perception though quick of
passion, often perhaps * little surly, some?
times showing hie white teeth in pretence of
anger, but whose bark is worse than his bite."

ANCE COStPANT, ATHNTA DEPARTMENT.
To the PeopU ofSoulK Carolina:
The above Company was organ zed in 1660, in
consequence of the wholesale forfeiture of Southern
policies by Northern companies. The unparalleled
success of the enterprise has forced several of these
companies to restore their Southern policies, from
the fact that they could not operate in our midst
without the appearance of honesty.
We keep all our money at home to build up our
impoverished country-every dollar of premium
being safely invested in the State from which it is de?
rived. The institution is purely Southern, and hence
should appeal with great force to the patriotism and
and sympathy of every Southern heart.
'Tis not our purpose to make war on other com?
panies, but to exhibit the special advantages offered
by this purely Southern Company-founded on
patriotism and solid wealth. Its ratio of assets to
liabilities-tho true test of a company's strength-Is
second to none on this continent, being nearly $300
Whenever and wherever we have presented the
claims of tbls Company, it has not only enlisted the
sympathies of our people, bnt has alro secured their
hearty co-operation. We have secured 603 policies
in South Carolina since the 10th of February. We
number smong our Directors General Wade Hamp?
ton and Colonel Wm. Johnston, gentlemen well
known to every citizen of South Carolina. We ap?
peal personally to the people of Eoath Carolina to
assist in pushing forward this deservedly popular
Southern institution. J. H. MILLEB,

ta- A. DEFENSIVE MEDICINE.-"IN
time of peace prepare for war," is a sound military
maxim "Let not the sickly season find you unpre?
pared ," ls an equally good rule in medical Jurispru?
dence. Tho man must be made of iron who finds
himself at th? close of summer as strong as at its
commencement. Such a phenomeron ls rare, even
among the most robust of the human family. Mus?
cular and constitutional vigor oozes ont of us in the
broiling weather of Jnly and August, and few ot u?,
at the opening of the fall, are in thc best possible
condition to defy the unhealthy influences of the
Fever and Ague snd Bilious Bemitlent Fevers,
together with a variety of complain:? that affect the
digestive organs, the liver and the bowel*, form a
portion of the autumn p.og ramme. Bear in mind
that exhaustion invites these disorders, and that
Rtamlnal vigor enables the system to repel them.
"To be weak is to be miserable," says Satan to his
defeated lesions, in "Paradise Lost," and the axicm
is correct, though lt comes from an evil source.
Hoi then, yo weak and feeble, fortify yourselves
against the invisible enemy thit pervades the au?
tumnal air. The best delenre against miasma is a
corrse or HOSrKTrElt'? STOMACH BITTERS.
This rare vegetable tonic will improve your appetite,
stimulate your digestion, give firmness to jour
nerves, invigorate your muscular fibre, regulate
your secretions, cho?r your spirits, and put your en?
tire physique in perfect workiog order. It is easily
done. The stan-lard tonio and alterative which will
recuperate and build you up, U not "bad to take,"
but, on the contrary, a pleasant medicine.
See, however, that you havo the genuine article.
There are imitations and counterfeits in the market,
and they are all worthl-sa or deleterious. Bear in
mind that HOSTETIEB'S 8TOMACH BITTERS ls
Bold only In glass, (never by the gallon or cask,) and
that each bottle bears a label surmounted by a
vignette ot St. George and tho Dragon, and our
revenue stamp over the cork.
