[SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THU NEWS.]
WASHINGTON", October 5.
Thi-re was a full and important Cabinet
meeting to-day, to consider the subject of the,
?? seizure of the Cuban privateer Hornet. Some
of the Secretaries favored her release, but it
was finally decided that her case came clearly
within the scope of the neutrality laws, an*
that she most be detained. The Spanish
Minister is highly elated to-night at the re?
sult of the conference.
It has been ascertained from authentic
sources, and may be definitely stated, that the
following are the views, in substance, enter?
tained by the President, and sure to be car'
ried'out by the administration, with reference
to the questions involved. The shipment of
anns and munitions of war to either party en?
gaged in tte Cuban struggle is not prohibited
The ^evolutionists have an equal right to buy
and ship arras with the Spaniards. It is upon
the fitting out of naval or -military expeditions
that the neutrality laws operate. It is an en
tire mistake to suppose that the United States
officers have ever been instructed to stoff the
a shipment of merchandise, even though it be in
' the form of articles contraband of war. The
owners and masters of vessels must in all cases
take their own risk. But if any expedition,
whether of armed men or of armed vessels, or
if any vessel fitted out and intended for naval
warfare, is started from our ports, then the
question of our duty as neutrals, or as a friendly
power arises; and even if we had acknowledged
the independence of Cuba, our duty and our
rule could be no dur?rent until we had directly
and publicly espoused one side of the quarrel
by making war upon the other.
A special dispatch from the office of the Cin?

The Recant Panie in Gold-Statements
of the President-Audacity of Flak, Jr.
[FROM TBS ASSOCIATED PRESS.]
WASHINGTON, October 6.
As comments have been made in the news?
papers affecting the administration in connec
"~ tlon with the recent gold panic, and much in?
terest ls expressed on the subject, the Wash?
ington agent of the Associated Press called
upon the President to ascertain whether there
was any foundation for the insinuation or di?
rect charges against the administration. The
President conversed with the utmost frankness
on the subject, and said he had not thought
proper to publicly contradict the statements
concerning himself, as he had done noth?
ing whatever to influence the money market
or to afford any advantages to private parties.
While in New York he had many voluntary ad?
viser*, but he repeatedly said to them that the
administration always held itself in a position
t<f act as it seemed best, and free to make any
change of policy for the public interest In
the course oT conversation he Btated that,
while on the eve of going to Newport, James
Fisk, Jr., came on board the steamer at New
York' and said to the President that Gould hai
sent him down to ask that he would privately
give them a little intimation as to what the
administration was going to do on the financial
question. The President replied that the giving
of such information would not be fair, and asked
Fisk whether he did not think so himself. Fisk
admitted it would not be fair. The President
then Informed him that, whenever the adminis?
tration1' was going to change its action or policy,
the Secretary of the Treasury would give notice
through the newspapers as usual, so that
everybody might, at the same time, know
what it was, thus excluding any possible
charge of favoritism. On the morning of the
panic, Friday week, Secretary Bootwell com?
municated to the President the situation of
affairs in New York, when the President said;
"sell $5,000,000 of gold." The Secretary said
that he had come for the purpose of sugges?
ting a sale of $3,000,000, the idea of selling
gold thus appearing to be in the mind of each
at the same time. A few minutes thereafter
the order was telegraphed to New York to
sell four millions of gold. It may be repeated
that the President had informed no one whom
soever of the purposes of the administration on
financial subjects, and the same remark is
equally true as to the Secretary of the Trej

THE CUBAN PRIVATEER.
This morning the case of the Cuban priva
i teer was carried before General Allan Ruther
J ford, United States Commissioner of the Dis
! trict of Cape Fear. Judges Person and French
appeared for the government, and Geo. Davis,
'Esq., and Judge 0. P. Meares for the defend?
ants. The parties were arraigned on the
charge that they did accept and exercise a
commission to serve a foreign people in war,
to wit: the people of Cuba against the people
of Spain, a country" with which the United
States are at peace, and did fit out
and arm, or did procure to be fitted
fitted out. and armed within the limits of the
United States, a certain ship or vesel called the
Cuba, with intent that the said vessel shall be
employed in the service of the people of Cuba
to cruise and commit hostilities against the
people of Spain, and did enlist and serve on
board of said vessel, with intent to cruise and
commit hostilities against the people of Spain,
in violation of the statutes of the United
States, and the acts of Congress of April 20,
1810. The government pressing the matter,
the parties were not feqdired to give bonds
for their appearance, but were placed in the
custody of the United States Marshal, Neff, who
released them on parole on their personal as?
surance that they would not attempt to leave.
The counsel for the government made the
point that the vessel had been fitted out in the
United States, as charged in the indictment,
to cruise and commit hostilities against
a government with which the United States
are at peace, and to make it a prima
facie case they asked for a continuance to
allow time to secure the presence of witnesles
for the government from New York and Wash?
ington. Counsel for the defendants opposed
the motion for continuance, contending that
the United States had no right to hold them
as the vessel was commissioned by a regular?
ly organized government, the Republic of
Cuba; that she put into Smithville in distress,
and that it was contrary to the laws of nations
to detain her. Commissioner Rutherford de
decided that lt was a prima facie case, and
granted the government until Monday, the
11th instant, at ll o'clock, to produce wit?

THE METHODIST CHURCH.
fleeting of the Charleston District Con?
ference of the M. E. Church, South.
[FROM O?R OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
COI.LETON, S. C., Monday, October 4.
The Charleston District Conference of the
Methodist Episcopal Church, South, began its
session with the usual religious services, at
Indian FieldB Camp Ground, Colleton County,
on Thursday, September 30th, and was organ?
ized with the Presiding Elder of the district,
Rev. A. M. Chrletzberg, in the chair. B. Stokes,
delegate from Walterboro' Circuit, was elected
secretary. The names of the delegates from
the various circuits and stations were enrolled,
and they were accredited as members of the
Conference. The chairmen of the various reg?
ular committees were announced, and after
motions and resolutions preliminary to the
regular business, the meeting adjourned its
session for the day.
On Friday morning the Conference resumed
its session, Rev. A. M. Chrletzberg in the chair,
who announced the regular committees. Re?
ports from the pastors ot the various charges
in the district were made. These reports were
interesting, furnishing as they did evidences
of the increased vitality of religion in the
church. Pending the hearing of these reports,
Bishop Wightman appeared and took his seat
as chairman of the Conference. The election
of lay delegates to the next session of thc
South Carolina Annual Conference ni mode
the order of the day for the4 afternoon session.
In the afternoon session the election was
entered into, with the following result : Dele?
gates-Dr. A. E. Williams, Hugo G. Sheridan.
Francis J. Pelzer and S. W. Williams. Alter.
natcs-J. S. Funches. Daniel Knight, B. Stokes
and J. S. Murray.
The Saturday morning session, with the
Bishop in the chair, was occupied with hear?
ing reports from the various committees. The
report of the Committee on Education, by
Rev. J. R. Pickett, chairman, was read. Pro.
fessor Duprcc, of Wofford College, being in?
troduced by the Bishop, gave a highly interest?
ing address, showing the origin and progress
of that institution of learning, the high grade
of scholarship demanded for its honors, and
the determination of its faculty to keep it
abreast of any in the land, proving that while
it was a denominational college it was not sec?
tarian-some of its recent graduates entering
the ministry In other churches, uninfluenced
in their predilections by any advice of the fac?
ulty. The address of thc chairman of the com?
mittee was of a highly interesting and in?
structive character, evincing his thorough ac?
quaintance with bis subject and his ability to
deal with it in a masterly manner. The report
on Ministerial Support was read by Hugo G.
Sheridan. This was a paper of real ability,
and the subject treated in a manner highly
creditable to the committee, for the valuable
suggestions offered. The evils growing out of
a secularized ministry were forcibly set fofth;
the Divine appointment clearly exhibited that
those "that preach the Gospel should live of
the Gospel," and charged any failure In this
direction to the want of vital piety'ln the offici?
ary whose business lt ls to care for the min?
istry. The reports of Committees on the State
of the Church, on Sunday Schools, on Mis?
sions, on Temp?rance, on Legal Tenure of
Church Property, on Pastoral Relations, on
Church Literature were severally read and
adopted. These papers were productions of
high excellence and rare merit, and were re?
plete with interest to the entire church. The
place for the next Conference having been
fixed at Providence Camp Ground, the present
session adjourned sine die.
A MODEL MEETING.
Caffte at a Township Meeting-The
Why and "Wherefore of a Burying
G round-Divers Radical? Explain
their Position. ? ? .
[FROM AN OCCASIONAL CORRESPONDENT. ]
ORANGEBTRG, S. C., October 4.
May I trouble you with an account of Hie
last meeting of Zion Township, Orangeburg
District, or, rather "Keounty,'" so-called? The
meeting was for the purpose of deciding
whether there should be a township burying
ground or not. Very early on the morning of
Thursday last, Cuffee, with a few of his white
brethren, and some of thc respectability of the
township, had assembled for the purpose. I
had no Idea Sambo was in so much earnest?
ness about a place to be burled ; but as hin
forty acres and a mule have not appeared yet,
he seems to have given up all hopes In that di?
rection and whittled down his agrarian ideas to
six by three. The meeting bade fair to be a
quiet one indeed, until one of the property
holders opposed it on the ground that there
were enough burying-grounds already, when
several darkies, In long speeches, told of
"rebs who had been planting cotton and corn
over de dead bodies of de great colored race;"
that "de white man felt very little Interest, as
da was stabllshed in de land by the labor of
dat mighty people; but how would lt bc when
de colored foax owned de lan, den de poor
white man would want a place to ho buried."
About this time a white man, "so-called," fol?
lowed with what he called a speech, less sen?
sible, by far, than the speeches of the ne?
groes who had preceded him. But to make
the matter short, Cuffee got the land and no
mule, when the meeting came to a close.
Just before this, a carriage came up with a ma?
hogany colored individual, one white man,
and an unadulterated negro, who pretended
that they understood * there was a mass meet?
ing of the citizens, and had come to make
speeches. So they began to speak-mahogany
colored taking thc lead. Il seemed he
was alarmed, fearing that votes would be lost
by heavy taxation, &c, but Sambo was
soon satisfied on that subject, when he
was told that the tax was to pay for the cor?
ruption of their former miers, who had
squandcreed the public money, Ac. Next the
white man followed, giving a history of him?
self and great ancestors, who all no doubt
fought, bled and died for republicanism; but
he forgot to say that he wished Seymour and
Blair elected, and wrote a letter to a Demo-"
eratic club that he was a Democrat, (at the same
time being a candidate on the Radical ticket.)
This part of his history his friend and brother
has not been Informed of. His purpose at the
meeting was to define his position, as certain
articles in the papers had made him unpopu?
lar. This was very easily accomplished by
telling them of your statement of the cotton
crop of 1868, in which an estimate of the num?
ber of dollars per head waa given. The ques?
tion was asked: "Did you get your share?"
"No !" "no !" was the reply from his sable au?
dience. No doubt he thinks he has a claim

ahead-the pollticul i ot ha < already boiled to

[FROM OCR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
FLORENCE, S. C., Octuoer 4.
The dearth of senBational news is rather a
favorable sign for our immediate community.
Up to this year, since the war ended, we were
continually in commotion about some exciting
subject, generally detrimental to the welfare of
our section. But '69 has been, thus far, char?
acterized by greater industry and quiet, better
feeling and order, and more encouraging hope
than any period since December, '65.
The cotton crop of this section is about as
large aa it was last year, except that the rust
has caused lt to open earlier, and consequent?
ly to be thrown upon the market in larger
quantities than usual for this season. Not over
half of a corn crop will be realized this year,
and this, with very short potato and pea crops,
will necessitate the expenditure of a large part
of the proceeds of the cotton crop for corn.
Nearly all the bacon consumed in this vicinity
lins still to be bought, aa we have hot yet been
able, with security, to risk the effort to raise
and "save our bacon." Hands have worked
better this year than since they were freed,
and stealing has not been so common.
The health of our community has been un?
usually good this year, but though death has
not come so frequently, taxes have come more
heavily and unrelentingly. The tax officers
are still gorging at Darlington.
We had a little excitement the other day in
the trial of a slander case, before P. C. Fludd,
colored magistrate. The suit was brought by
Loyns against Strauss, both merchants, and
although the amount was small, Colonel Sey?
mour, of Charleston, and Colonel Warley, of
Darlington, were engaged os counsel in the
case. The crowd was so great to hear these
distinguished gentlemen, that the magisterial
court had to be adjourned to a larger hali. The
Jury gave damages in the sum of $48, and I
hear an appeal was token.
I must not forget to announce the burning
near here of Mr. Robert McKenzie's turpentine
still, with about $2000 worth of turpentine and
rosin, and two or three small buildings-total
loss about $2500. Cause, accidental. Mr. Mc?
Kenzie Is one of our staunchest citizens, and
has the sympathies of the community. There

There will bc a lively contest this tall among

them will give Pendleton tho largest majority.
Tho race will be close between Butler, Holmes,
Fairfield, Crawford, Mercer and Aiiglaize.
Each of these counties are up to two thousand
and over, and the rivalry between them will be
Intense. Above these counties, in the extent
of our majority hitherto, has been noble old

of 3500 and Munroe can give 2800. There Is
another class of counties, such as Licking,
Hocking, Defiance, Putnam. Allen. Shelby,

which in numerical Democratic power are only
Inferior to the others we have mentioned.
When the Hayes men hear from the above

largest Democratic majority, and another to

NASHVILLE, September 28.
The Legislature conveaes next Monday, and
early In tho succeeding week will elect a Uni?
ted States senator. At thia early day the fol?
lowing events caa be predicted with a reason?
able certainty of their fulfilment. 1. Andrew
Johnson will be elected senator. 2. The Fif?
teenth amendment will not be ratified. 3. A
constitutional convention will be called at an
early day, which body will effect tile enfran?
chisement of every disfranchised person in the

will not Interfere with the civil and political
rights of the negro. 4. In any event tho bonds
of thc State will not be repudiated, although
the earnest advocates for such a measure will
not be wanting. 5. Thc partlsaa legislation
of the last few years will be generally repealed.
These are tho malu questions to come

A New Radical Plot-Andrew Johnson
to bc Rejected as Senator.
[From the Philadelphia Press, Radical.]
Tennessee ls developing a new move in her
State politics. By many It ls conceded that
under the new election Andrew Johnson will '
receive his credentials as United States sena?
tor. It is sold now that Messrs. Stokes,
Brownlow, Maynard, and also Etheridge, freely
declare that the Senate will refuse to admit
Mr. Johnson, under a specific construction of
the clause ol' the constitution which declares
that body to be the exclusive Judge of the
qualifications of those elected to lt. The dis?
qualification is none other than "disloyalty,"
and the allegation will be substantiated suffi?
ciently for the Immediate purpose by the evi?
dence brought out on the trial for impeach?
ment. That one less than two-thirds of the
Senate voted to convict the President, is to be
offset by the fact that much more than a ma?
jority were comprised in the affirmative.
There ls much force In thc objection of the
Tennes8eeans. Jesse D. Bright was expelled
by the Senate for disloyalty, the disloyal action
being the writing of a mere letter of recom?
mendation. Mr. Thomas, of Maryland, was
rejected bv the Senate for thc same, his overt
disloyal act being the furnishing of money to
his own son.
A Radical Trick.
Much surprise was expressed because Gover?
nor Geary, of Pennsylvania, appointed a num?
ber ot Democrats as delegates to the Louis?
ville Commercial Convention. But some
shrewd follow found out that the election took
place on the very day the convention^as ap?
pointed to meet, and* so, surprise gave way m>

THE CH ER AW AND SALISBURY
Letter from Major Townsend.
Mr. D. B*. Townsend, the president ot the
Cheraw and Salisbury Railroad, publishes, In
the Chesterfield Democrat a long letter, con?
taining his version of thc circumstances at?
tending the late sale of Cheraw and Darling?
ton Railroad stock, held by his company. Mr.
Townsend argues that lt was manifest that
Charleston intended to do no more for the
road, but would stand back and let the North
Carolina interests lead off. He continues as
In pursuance of this policy, demonstrations
were made along the line In North Carolina in
July, numerous subscriptions were obtained,
payable on demand, for the purpose of loca?
ting the road immediately, and a general in?
terest was aroused In favor of the enterprise.
To sustain this, and to assure our North Caro?
lina friends that we were in earnest, lt was de?
cided at the meeting of directors in Cheraw,
August 11th, to organize and send out a corps
of engineers on the line Immediately, and to
raise, by the sale of some of our lifeless stocks,
an Important sum of money to commence the
grading at this end of the line. All of the di?
rectors outside of Charleston voted for the
sale, and but for the extraordinary and vexa?
tious suit that has been brought, because of
this sale, the work would now he progressing
The stoat was subscribed and paid over to
the company some six or seven years ago, and
although it has been regarded as dead capital
In the hands of the directors-because no use
could be made of it heretofore-there has never
before been any question raised as to our title
to the stock. If the company owned the stock
the board had a perfect right to sell lt In the
best and highest market That Charleston was
not the point to negotiate an advantageous
sale, is evident from the fact that the North?
eastern Railroad stock, which has been re?
garded as much better stock, was quoted and
selling at the time this negotiation was going
on at $8 to $9 per share. There was another
significant indication. Charleston had been
strongly represented on the board ever since
this stock was transferred to the Cheraw and
Coalfields Railroad Company, and her directors
knew how anxious we were to realize means
to go on with the work, and yet .no offer or in?
timation of an offer ever came from that quar?
ter. And finally, two of the Charleston directors
were present when the sale was ordered
voted against the sale, but did not offer to bet?
ter thc old. They did suggest hypothecation,
but seven of the directors preferred to sell.
I happen to know all that has been said about
the object of this purchase is erroneous. The
stock was bought as aa investment, and I have
the very best authority for saying that no dis?
crimination will ever be made against Charles?
ton by the proprietors of this stock. But it ls
time for the question to bc settled in this State
as to whether the stockholders or other peo?
ple are to run and control the railroads, what
right for instance, has the Northeastern Rail?
road Company to run the Cheraw and Darling?
ton Railroad ? Both are distinct corporations,
owned by different stocksolders, and pre?
sided over by different boards of directors,
and yet it is very well understood
that the Northeastern Board exercises
as absolute control over the Cheraw
and Darlington Road as it does over
its own concern, and this accounts
for the "milk In the cocoanut" Why, it
is said, (and I presume will hardly be denied.)
that tho president of thc Northeastern Rail?
road offered the purchasers of this stock, in?
terest at thc the rate of seven per cent, per
annum on the entire investment, for the sim?
ple control of their proxy for two years! It hy
fair to conclude, therefore, that lt ls profitable
to the Northeastern Company to control the
Cheraw and Darlington Railroad, or that en?
terprising concern could not afford to pay
nearly $6000 for the simple privilege of repre
mjmtiaa M\i shares lor two short years. It is
apprehended, no doubt, mm new etookhoiosro
will find out that they have Just as much right
to mn it, as a separate and independent con?
cern, as the proprietors of any other railroad
In the State.
