WASHINGTON, September 16.-General Bey
nolds telegraphed General Sherman that the
State constitution provides only one precinct
in each county, and that the conn ties are so
large that voters from a distance would not
have time to reach the polling place in one
day; be therefore asked for extensi?n of time.
Sherman telegraphed Grant at Pittsburg,
Penn., stating the substance of the above.
Grant replied that if any provision of the Re?
construction act allowed extension, it should
be granted. Sherman, on examination, found
authority to extend the time to four days, and
telegraphed the order to Reynolds last night.
Mississippi has not asked for extension yet.

THE CONDITION OF THE FRENCH EMPEROR.
LONDON, September 14 -Parisians are per?
suaded that the Emperor is recovering, al?
though a marked alteration in his appearance
"is observable. There is great anxiety con?
cerning the Regency by law. Tte Empress is
Begent during the minority of ber son. lt is
generally believed that the Emperor desires to
promote a good understanding between the
Empress and Prince Napoleon. The idea of
entrusting a share of the Regency to the Prince
ia discountenanced by some, while bints are
current that the Prince's absence on board his
yacht is connected with plans of others in his
behalf, if not directly with his own. The Em?
peror gave audience to General Prim yester?
Io ND ON, September IC-The Times has an
editorial on Sickles' diplomacy in Spain, and
says "there is no doubt that the alternative
is offered Spain of the abandonment of Cuba
or American recognition of the insurgente.
The weraggle wilt be hopeless, so far as Spain
is concerned, but tbe government cannot con?
trol tb<? impulses of the people', and Spanish
pride holds the government in strong check.
From the most tranquil provinces come offers
of men and arms, that the regulars may go to
- Coba. Tbe aggressive policy of the United
8tates cannot bo justified by tbe attitude cf
Spain towards Cuba." .

sultation with the Emperor satisfactojr. Be

LONDON, September 14.-A Madrid corres?
pondent of the "London Times writes as fol?
lows: "Hitherto the Spanish Government and
press have unwisely adopted the plan of con?
cealing unfavorable Coban news, bat the Epoca
has now broken the silence and startled the
Spaniards by making a statement of actual
facts, and vehemently urging the dispatch of
troops and tbe onion of men of all parties, so
that the government may be left free to Bave
Coba. The oews of Sickles' proposal to recog?
nize the Coban insurgents as belligerents bas
caused ss much excitement as if be threatened
to take the part of the Cabans. It hid tbe
" efi'ecf to make fonda fall to the lowest point
touched for the past sixteen years. The dis?
patch of General Sickles not yet been publish?
ed. Whatever its moral effect may be, the re?
monstrance of the United States bas unques?
tionably terrified the Spaniards amazingly?
The Times, in an editorial on the Coban
question, says : If the American negotiations
for the cession of Cuba have failed, it most be
because the som tendered was deemed insuf?
ficient, or the Washington Government dreads
the opposition of (bose who feel confident tbat
Coba most fall into the hands of the United
States, or deem it folly to incnr liability. The
Spanish Government bas been admonished to
put an end to the insurrection, or give up the
island on any terms. If these circumstance
have prompted the Madrid Government to play
its last card for the articles and stake all on it,
it cannot be congratulated on its resolution.
The subjugation of Coba cannot bo achieved
by soldiers, nor will it result from a series of
victories. The troops may bold the seaports,
bot the inland regions will be against them;
armed columns may traverse the island, but
they can nowhere establish a permanent loot?
ing. With tbe exception of a few traders,
Spain has no friends on the island. Prim and
Serrano have often told the Cortes tbat the
loss of Cuba is merely a question of time; for
four months they have been devising tho most
advantageous terms. It is to be boped that
wisdom and consistency will enable them to
seo that it is good to be rid of the island on
any tabns. and caose them to consider before
wasting men and money, which tbey cannot
spare in the furtherance of an enterprise
which will never yield a hundretb part of what
it bas already irreparably cost.
PATO, September 14.-Letters from Madrid
assert tbat a fleet o! iroo-clads will be sent to
?nba in November, in case the United States
recognize. The Spanish Government stop- ill
telegrams which it does not approve, especially
those concerning Cuba. The Barcelona Diario
hopes that, notwithstanding the action of the
United States, Spain will knowhow to maintain
her flag and her dignity.
MADRID"; September 16.-Tno iron-clads,
have been ordered to Cuba. Three thousand
men have left and seven thousand will follow
ibis week. Prim telegraphs the government
from Paris, advtsing diligence in sending
troops to Cuba.

This was a petition by creditors for involun?
tary bankruptcy of the respondent upon four
counts, only ihre J of which, however,' wertr
relied upon as material, to wit : A mort?
gage of some 3100 actes of land to one Tomp?
kins to secare a debt of $4000; a subsequent
conveyance of the same in fee, to pay t JIB debt,
of $6000 more; the delivering np to Keys &
McCuUy of a note for $1000 to whom respon?
dent owed $700-each count alleging that the
transaction specified was made whilst the re?
spondent was a bankrupt, with intent to give
a preference. The petitioner claimed two
notes, and the petition was taken in the outset
by the defence that he had no status in court,
on the ground that one was paid and the other
was tainted with negro. The testimony was
pretty conclusive as to the first; but the last
was given for balance of a large transaction
had about the commencement of the war, only
a portion of which was for negroes. His Honor
charged the jury that a note lor negroes before
LiDcoln s proclamation took effeat was perfect?
ly valid, but that the question did not arise
in this case probably as the note grew ont of a
mixed transaction, and from the original pro?
positions ot the consideration the respond?
ents, by whatever basis of calculation they
might adopt, must owe the petitioner $250,
which was enough to establish bis right to be
A great deal of testimony was offered on the
question of insolvency. The respondent told
petitioner when the latter firet demanded pay?
ment after the war, that be was (then) wholly
unable ;o pay-could scarcely live-and the
English rule of technical insolvency was strong?
ly pressed. Various estimatea wero made of
the value of the lands mortgaged, (and subse?
quently conveyed,) to Tompkins, bat the
preponderance of the testimony made
them a hard bargain on the whole, at
fifty cents per acre: the note deliver?
ed up to Keys & McCuUy, was shown
to have been given tor a two-third interest in a
similar tract in the mountains of Pickeas. It
was farther showa that at thc time this note
was redelivered, the respondent owed the
firm of Keys A McCully about seven hundred
dollars, tbat no credit wes given, and they
went on tarnishing him with supplies and fer?
tilizers, and as one of the firm said thc respon?
dent's credit bad been perfectly good with
them and remained unimpaired! and that no
settlement has yet been made. Tne casi was
argued at length and with great zeal and
ability on both sid-s.
His Honor charged the jory with great clear?
ness and very folly. Both patties expressed
their satisfaction and declined to ask special
instructions. Without attempting to quote
the charge, the court said, in substance, that
to make out thc case it was necessary that in?
solvency and a preference must concur. A
trader unable to pay his debts in the or li nary
course of business is insolvent prima facie
and it is incumbent on him to show that he
is not so in fact. The role dies not
apply with the same strictness to the farmer,
and as to them this rule is reversed-the peti?
tioner must take the onus of showing actual
ineolveucy. The "preference" mast be an ad?
vantage actually given to one or mure of his
creditors over tho others, with the knowledge
of bis situation and the intent lo accomplish
this end. This "intent" is an clement of the
objec?c nable transaction, ac -ordir^ 'o the let?
ter of the law, and thoueh one is , urned to
intend the natural results cf his a tho in?
tent is essent?ai, and must be shown by ais acts
and the circumstances. ' When thc respondent
sold the land to Tompkins, he believed, at
least, that he was paying a debt of $10.000; and
if he considered these lands of such compara?
tively insignificant value, it would be hard to
believe, upon the estimates of the relative value
of bis assets and liabilities, that ho intended or
thought he was giving a preference to this
creditor. The solution ci the mortgage is
much more difficult, not only on account of
the difference * of the sum, but also
because it was merely a security for that sam
and did not relieve his estate of' it by a settle?
ment in full. The Keys & McCully. transac?
tion is a peculiar one, and is to be solved by
tho testimony which you have. No credit was
(riven upon the books, but if from the testi?
mony you are satisfied that the $700 was paid
by the respondent in tull by the redelivery of
thc $1000 note, then is not this more thau be
could pay to others, and to that extent a prefer?
ence ? If von shall conclude that this note was
redelivered to meet the heavy advances of pro?
visions and ot fertilizers subsequently made as
well as the debt already contracted, then you
may reach a diffeient conclusion, 'i beeo are
questions which it is yoar peculiar province to
solve. The insolvency aDd the intent to give a
preference must concur.
The jnry returned a verdict of not gailtv.
It is understood that the case went off solely
on the question of insolvency.

M A KI ON COURTHOUSE, Wednesday, Sept. 15.
The ball is opening. Judge Rutland bao
granted the rule against President Townsend
and the directors concurring with him. The
return to this rule is tobe heard at Darlington
Courthouse on Friday and Saturday, 8th and
9th of October. On Tuesday afternoon Colonel
Hudson opened the argument for the defen?
dants (President Townsend and IMrectors of
Cbetaw and Salisbury Railroad Company) and
made an elaborate defence. After Colonel
Hudson closed, General Harllee spoke for
about forty minutes on the same side, when
the sitting adjourned to meet at 5 P. M. this
day. General Harllee then concluded his point?
ed and rigorous argument, and was followed
by Major BJ rker. Before Major Barker had
co"clne.ee! his reply, Judge Rutland announced
his intention to grant the rule, which was im?
mediately done. Thus closed a series of foren?
sic treats to those who bad time to attend.
Our Sessions Court is still dragging its slow
length a'ong. The case of child murder al?
luded to some few days since resulted in the
acquittal of one cf tho md ic to 1 (a boy of some
eight or niuo years of age) and a verdict of !
manslaughter against the other (a girl of abont [
thirteen.) This is, from the circumstances,
really a case deserving the clemency of the
Executive, for much of tho proof was circum?
stantial, and the girl is too young and too
friendless not to create sympathy. To-morrow,
a man accused of Brigham Young's propensity
will face bis two wives in open court and bear
their teetimony. Heaven help bim ! The civil
business will probably be reached about Friday
or Saturday. PEEDEE.

The large dealers are having an advantage

They are giving longer credits, and monopliz

the war, and an approach to the old times of
eight, twelve and eighteen months' credit is
being made, not only in the ready granting of
four months, but increasing the time lo six,
adding interest for the extra two months.
Every neaw div goods bouse is a bee-hive.
The clerks and salesmen alone would form a

buyers by being in shirt si "eves, and carrying
pencils on their ears. Goods are dragged

TALL STYLES NOT OVER BEAUTIFUL.
There is a general growl among dry goods
dealers at the ugly styles of the present season.
The taste of inventora seems to have been ex*
bausted. Retailers snarl, and say they can't
lay siage to the women with such patterns.
Bay. however, they must. The country wanta
goods; and, whatever the prospects of gold or
political measures may be, they are compelled
to invest heavily.
SOMETHING ABOUT COTTON AND WOOL.
The present high price of cotton has caused
a suspension of work at some mills, which may
tend to produce a scarcity of manufactures be?
fore tbe season closes, and render prices high?
er. The size of the coming cotton crop does
not promise a reduction of rates. Europe is in
want of it, and will absorb heavy shipments.
Cotton goodB generally are selling well. Wool?
lens are improving, especially the higher
erades, and the same may be said of all mixed
qualities. Foreign goods ot all kinds show a
proportionate activity with domestics. For?
tune? are everywhere m prospect, and a period
of heavy tra'Uo^ ia upon us.
THE COUNTRY MERCHANT IN THE EVENING.
The hotels in tho evening present an un?
usually animated and lively appearance. In
the lobbies of the hotels, in the reading loome,
in the bar-rooms, and in the billard room s can
be seen merchants from all parts ot tho Union.
You will find the Western mau generally play?
ing billards. He is a tall, stout, healthy
gentleman, with a ruddy complexion. He is
genial, open-hearted, good-natured, and soci?
able. His coat is off, and he appear? to enjoy
the game. If defeated, be plays again, and
will keep on playing until midnight just to win
once. On a little mahogany fabio io his right
lies his favorito beverage, which evtry now
and then he sips. OJ an elevated platform
are soft cushioned chairs, wbero thoughtful
and motionless, sits tho Southerner. He wears
a long chin whisker. His complexion is sallow.
His jet-black eve sparkles with animation. Ho
is of a thin and delicate physique. He wears
a broad-brimmed black felt hat, and is dressed
in deep black cloth.
In the bar-room you find all sorts from all
parts. Beside our country cousin, with bis
tongue rattling at a fearful' rate, is tho acute
drummer, who off=rs every inducement that
can bring custom to his house. He spends
money freely. He Bells on commission, and he
can well afford to regalo bis customer with
wine, suppers and choice seats at the theatre.
The dry goods salesmau is the sharpest of the
lot. He begins his apprenticeship when a boy,
and by the time he attains his majority he
knows every prominent buyer in tho coun-ry.
He is a closo observer of character, and can
tell his man at a glance.
From 8 o'clock until ll the multitudes
throng all the avenues of tho first floor of the
hotel. They are scattered in groups of four,
five, six. or more. The prospect of a fall or
decline in the prices is discussed. Views are
exchanged, acquaintances formed, plans laid.
Boots and shoes, hardware, drv goods, groce?
ries, drugs, hats and caps, and every variety
of merchandise comes up in its turn, and re?
ceives a tull share of attention. The crowd
continues to surge to and fro. One man will
listen here, and shortly after join some other
group, and so on throughout the evening. At
midnight tbe buzz an1 commotion has ceased.
The stiangers have retired tor the night.
CHICAGO SPREADING HER WINGS.
Last Saturday evening we met a Western
gentleman at the St. Nicholas Hotel, who is tt e
reprt sen'ative of a wealthy dry goods house,
and is well known in mercantile circles. He
nib med us that he was surprised at the small
number of buyers from places west of Chicago.
Their number is diminishing greatly eveiy
ya.'. The majority of buyers in the city hail
from the South. He attributes this absence ef
Western merebauts to the fact that they can
purchase their goods os cheap in Chicago aa
they can in New York. The former city is
gradually monopolizing all the Western trade.

HOTT TO GET WHITE LABOR.
Important Circular from the Newberry
The Immigration Society of Newberry, South

with field laborers and mechanics; requiring
their travelling expenses, Ax:., to be paid in ad?

such persons as aro unknown to the society.
Single female serran?a cannot be obtained.
The society can promise with certainty to fill,

CHEATING THE GALLOWS.
Another Remarkable Case of "Execu?
tive t lemo ney. "
Tho Kingstrec Star, in commenting upon'|
the recent interference of Governor Scott in
behalf of tbe negro murderer Simpson, re?
There was a time when the pirdODing power
was need in this State with great caution and
deliberation. lu many instances it was prop?
erly applied. But, alas 1 those times are gone.
Time was when both sides of a caso was con?
sidered on application for executive clemency;
but now. Governor Scott has changed the or?
der of things. He ignores entirely what was
done at tho trial of a case, and constitutes
himself judge and jury, and at the same time
executive of every case that may bo carriad
before him, whether proper for his interfer?
ence or not.
We too, as well as THE NEWS, have an in?
stance of tbis application ot the pardoning
power-this non-exe?utiou of tho laws-this
rubbing of the gallows of its victim.
A most brutal murder was committed in this
district in 18(17; the victim, a whiteman, named
Jae. Thoma*; the perpetrators Tom Graham, a
negro, who was tried and found guilty, and an?
other negro who made his escape from prison
in Georgetown before trial, by the name of
Wallace Crapps, when it snits bim to bc called
by that name, and by the name of Wallace
Evins at other times.
Tom Graham was tried before Judge Green.
Hu bad a long, full, (air aud impartial trial.
Counsel, as ab'.o as any iu thc Stato, were as?
signed bim, but the testimony against him
could not be rebutted. The jury found bim
guilty, and be was sentenced to be hung.
Shortly before tho day fixed for execution, au
individual, callod sometimes William BirdtcK.
but better known to the commu'jily among
tfhom ho livos as Byrd David, and pei haps
some otbsr alias, went before an officer and
made oath that he did not believe tbat Thomas
was murdered, and by his affidavit contradicted
all the witnesses who went on the stand aDd were
subjected to a rigid cross examination. Upon
this affidavit a petition was got up and sighed
by several persons, and presented to Governor
Scott, invoking Executive clemency; and the
Governor, taking the affidavit of Byrd David to
be sufficient for bis purpose, turns looac upon
society the couvicted murderer, Tom Graham,
while Byrd David, even in his affiiavit-mads
entirely esparte, withouta cross-examination -
was cautious enough to sive only his opinion
and belief that James Thomas was not mur?
dered. Upon this sort of showing this Buck?
eye Governor of South Carolina sends his
friend Tom Graham S:olt-iiee.
?he trial of Tom Graham cost the State per?
haps two or three hundred dollar.?. It oc?

no matter how atrocious a murder may be
committed; no matter how ?evolting the cir?

Of what use to us are magistrates, solicitors
or judges, in those grave cases? Scott, by bis

Li BEE AL San TIMES TS.-Collections were
taken up Sunday in the Catholic Churches of
Brooklyn, New York, at all the masses, for the
relief of the families who are suffering by rea?
son of tbe late terrible calamity in Avondale,
Pennsylvania. The New York Times says:
InSt. Patrick's Church, Bev. Edward Fitz?
patrick, the pastor, made a powerful appeal to
tbe congregation to respond liberally on the
occasion. After announcing his own donation,
which was a handsome one, be remarked that
the widows and orphans made by this calam?
ity were not pf the Catholic faith. For this
reason he hoped the aid extended would be
greater than if the fact were otherwise. "Let
os show to the world," said the reverend gen .
tleman, "that Catholic charity takes no note
ot differences in language, nationality, color or
creed; that it is large enough and broad
euongh to bring within its folds all the needy
aud the suffering, whether they kneel before
the same altar with us, or worship God accord
ding to the formularies of another faith."
H KOK M ANN_Departed thia life on the 29th of
Auguat, lsGP, ADOLPH Ct) H h CK V?AN S, only son of
hia patenta, a native of Hamburg, Germany, (but
for many yea? a reaident of tbis city,) engaged in
the mercantile proleaiiou, and afterwards in tbe
office of the South Carolina Railroad Company. Of
high integrity and pure character, modest and retir?
ing, be passed away in the decline of life, after
reaching his 60th year. Bis health, always frail and
uncertain, caused bim to seek a home in this coun?
try to avoid tba severe climate of hts own. lt was
bia lot to become an inmate of a -cry pleasant
household, and he waaxhinabed and beloved by tho
farrily as one of theafown. He repaid it by tbe
warmest affection and most grateful attentions. He
has passed away without an enemy. Of a remarka?
bly amiable temper and gentle disposition, he made
only friends wherever be went, and tbose who knew
him best diseovered many noble traits which others
never dreamed of. His mind waa well ruluvated
and bis knowledge extensive; in fact, he wa* a
scholar. But his most beautiful trait waa his fidelity,
win ti was strikingly RU own in bis friendships as
well 89 business relations. Be wat ont who
could b- fruited. His piety was unobtrusive. He
was a member of the Germa j Lutheran Church
and died in that faith. He was one of thoeo whoae
charities are never told, yet doing much good. He
sleeps now far away from alibis kindred; yet good
angels watch over ibo spot, and the blessings of
tho? e who loved him best follow him to tbe grave.

49-A DEFENSIVE MEDICINE.-,,IN
timo of peace prepare for war," is a sound military
maxim "Let not the sickly season find you unpre?
pared," is an equally good rule in medical jurispru?
dence. The man must bo made of iron who Soda
himself at the close of summer as strong as at its
commencement. Sucha phenomenon is rare, even
amone the most robust of thc human family. Mus?
cular and consiitutisnal vigor oozes out of UH in the
broiling weather of July abd August, and few ot us,
at the openin? of the fall, arc tn thc best JICFS.L It
condition to defy the unhealthy influence* of the
Fever and Ague and Bilious Remittent Fevers,
together with a variety of complain,g tbat affect the
dlgoitive organs, the liver and the bowels, form a
portion of the autumn programme. Bear in mind
that exhaustion invites these disorders, and that
staminal vigor enables the system to repel them.
"To be weak ia to be miserable," says Satan to his
defeated lesions, in "Paradise Lost," and the axiom
is correct, though it comes from an evil source.
Hoi then, ye weak and feeble, fortify yourselves
against the invisible enemy thit pervades the au?
tumnal air. Thc best defence against miasma is a
course of HOSTET lEh'S STOMACH BITTERS.
This rare vegetable tonic will improve your appetite,
stimulate your digostiou, give firmness to your
nerves, Invigorate your muse liar fibre, regulate
your secretions, cheer your spirits, and put your en?
tit? physique in perfect working order. It is easily
done. The standard tonic and alterative which will
recuperate and build you up, is not "bad to take,"
but, on the contrary, a pleasant medicine.
See, however, lhat you have theafrnuine article.
Therp are imitations and counterfeits in thc market,
and they are all worthless or deleterious. Bear in
mind that HOSTfcTrER'S STOMACH BITTERS Is
sold only in glass, (never by the pallon or cask, i and

?-A CARD-SOUTHERN LIFE-INSUR?
ANCE COMPANY, ATLANTA DEPARTMENT.
To the People of South Carolina:
The above Company was organ zed In 186C, 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 So ut li ern policies, lrom
the fact that they could not operate in our midst
without the appearance of honesty.
We keep all our money at home to b'aild up our
Impoverished country-every dollar of premium
being safely Invested in tho State irvin which it ia de?
rived. The institution is purely Southern, and hence
should appeal with great force to the patriotism and
and sympathy of every Southern heart.
'Tia cot our purpose to make war on other com?
panies, but to exhibit the special advantages offered
by thia purely Southern Company-founded on
patriotism and solid wealth. Ita ratio of assets to
habUltlea-the 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 thia Company, it ha? not only enlisted the
sympathies of our people, but haa also secured their
h?arty co-operation. We have secured 600poltciea
in South Carolina since the 10th of February. We
number among our Directora 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 South Carolina to
assist in pushing forward thia deservedly popular
Southern institution. J. H. MILLER,

?-SOLOMON'S BIl'TERS.-THIS PRE?
PARATION, compounded by one of our oldest and
most esteemed dtuggiate, has, during the short time
in which it haa been offered to the publie, attained
a reputation which has almost entirely driven out of
mirket the various tonics and stimulant? which, for
a few mon'hB, by exorbitant puffing and heavy ad?
versing, succeeded in building a profitable busi?
ness for th?-ir projector?.
fco'omon's Bitters are not of the^flashy aryle, de
pendiug upon large advertising, bought puffs and
fictitious recommendations for a sale to a gullible
public. Their composition is well known to and ap?
proved by many of our best physician?, and the pro?
prietors depend upon the intrinsic merits of their
medicine to make it as popular as it is curative.
They do net pretend to oiler a medicinal prepara?
tion that wilt cure all the ills that flesh is heir to,
but they do contend that the judicious use of ?hese
Bitters will greatly alleviate humin suffering, and
'bring very many to a state of comparative health
who have long been strangers lo that gr*a? blessing.
One good genuino recommendation of any pro?
fessed curative is worth dozens or bunJreds of
bought certificates, and the Messrs. SOLOMONS
have only published a few out of the hundreds of un
so'icited testimonies which the have received. We
this morning give a copy of a letter from Bon. AL>X.
H. BTEPHKNS, whose peculiarly enfeebled condition
for the past six months has been known to the whole
