three miles distant in the country, one of the i
wives taking charge of each establishment. They y
married twin sisters near that point many years
since, and each has a family of beautiful black
eyed children of brunette complexion. They are
aged fifty-seven, are quite gray-haired, and while '
they are in independent circumstances they are 1
not wealthy. Their wives are large, healthy-look- <
lng women, and their country house, the only one (
we have seen, ls built of logs with puncheon floor, ,
and without flnlsh or decoration. They use a .
Windsor chair of double width, and a bed not less
than eight 'eet wide. A rustic flight of steps of [ I
double width leads to Ute attic, and they pass up I l
and down them without difficulty. On the occa?
sion of our visit there was a four-inch snow on
the ground, and as they were out gunning, we
hat! to await their return. When they made their
appearance they were walking very briskly, and
soon they were engaged in a spirited run. On
one of their inside shoulders they carried a dou?
ble-barreled shot gun, and were in fine humor.
They were exceedingly pleasant and hospitable lu

-The telegraph brings news of thc death of
"England's wealthiest son," Richard Grosvenor,
Marquisof Westminster. Early In thc last cen.
tury one Sir Richard Grosvenor liad the good luck
to marry Miss Molly Davies, thc daughter of a
gentleman of much landed property In thc County
of Middlesex, and in a few year.--, in consequence
of thc tide of fashion setting westward, found
that this same small landed estate was probably
for its size destined to bc almost the most valua?
ble in England. It now forms Grosvenor Square
and thc adjacent streets, and in fact the greater
portion of that property which, bounded south
by Picadilly, north by Oxford street, cast by Bond
street, and west by Par'. Lane, contained in
Sidney Smith's opinion, more Intellect refine?
ment aud social grace, than any other in thc
world. Some eighty years ago, about thc time
when George III was makiug Improvement.- nt
Buckingham House, now a palace, which had
been purchased as Queen Charlotte's dower house,
thc swampy ground between Hyde Park corner
and the Thames was ottered him for ?15 008. He
declined it, and it was subsequently purchased
by the Groa ven ors. Many years after it came imo
their possession, a very enterprising builder, Mr.
Cubitt, persuaded thc great banking house of
Smith, Payne & Smith to advance money to him
for drainage and building purposes, and thus
arose "Belgravia," which, when the leases fall
in, will probably yield the present Marquis of
Westminster ?400,000 a year. Lord Westminster
was a curious combination of generosity and
meanness, and a hundred stories arc current il?
lustrative of both these characteristics. He leaves
several children. The eldest, known as Lord
Grosvenor, now marquis, ls a remarkably popu?
lar man in his county, Cheshire. It ls computed
that the new mnrquis will have an Income of cer?
tainly not less than ?700,000 pounds a year. Lord
Westminster was a Liberal, but took no active
part In politics. HU health has long bean in a
Political Blackball in-.
If any one is so simple as to credit the
dispatch, that the Congressional sub-commit?
tee is coming ''to take testimony" in regard
to the contested elections of Messrs. Simp?
son and Reed, we recommend to him tho
careful perusal of the paper read by Hon.
H. X. Dawes, at the recent session of the
American Social Science Association. He
shows that these committees consist of a
majority of the political party ruling in tho
House, and that they are appointed for the
sole purpose of declaring that the contest?
ant belonging to that party ha3 been duly
The framers of the constitution assigned
to ?ach house the power of deciding upon
.the elections and qualifications of its own
members. There are no restrictions upon
the exercise ot.this prerogative. In the Sen?
ate the Judiciary Committee manipulates
the case ; in the House of Representatives,
the Committee of Elections, whose proper
business is to receive the testimony present?
ed by the contestants and to decide judici?
ally upon its value, but who have recently
receiv?d permission to go into the contested
districts and act at once as an inquisitorial
jury, a prosecution, and a bench of judges.
The plaintiff always belongs to their party,
i II i ? ii?... tm .t-<P?j lu -lignumi
him. They meet to hear his case, and to
legalize his assumptions-"only this, and
"nothing more." They have already made
their decision before a witness bas beeu
summoned. A Republican committee ap?
pointed to decide with supreme authority
upon the election of two Democrats signi?
fies the intention of the party in power to
exclude those gentlemen from the House of
Representatives, whatever may haye been
the majorities by which they were elected.
As Mr. Dawe3 testifies, and as everybody
knows, each case"of this sort is coming to
be amore partisan struggle. "The com
"mittee dare not resist thc exactions of
"party, and their action is, in consequence,
"worthy only of contempt." And the de?
grading ends of their appointment, as wall
as the corrupt resorts of the party now in
power, appear from the fact that "while
"there were only sixty cm".s during the first
"sixty-five yean of tho government, there
"have been more than that number within
"the past ten years-over twenty of which
"are uow pending." All these contestants
belong to the majority. An injured Demo?
crat or Conservative weil knows that an ap?
peal for justice to a Radical Congressional
committee would be perfectly absurd. Its
members have been selected on account of
their political complexion ; they have had a
certain political work assigned to them; they
have bee? canvased before-hand ; they go
out upon their mission like excursionists
upon a frolic-with all their expenses paid,
and succeed in catching something, as cer?
tain shrewd amateurs do, by fastening the
desired fish upon the hook before it is cast
into the water at all. The result is cer?
tain from the beginning. A partisan
speaker appoints a partisan committee,
which returns a partisan report, and upon
thi3 report the members vote according to
their political affiliations. There is not a
straw left for a minority politician to catch
at. Hence while the people of Die upper
districts may have determined that Messrs.
Simpson and Reed shall represent them, an?
other set of people, temporarily resident in
Washington, have determined that they
shall not. And we rather apprehend th.it |
the other set will have their own way.
Yet all such contesta will do good. The
time will come when the people of this State
and of every State will .secure to themsclvc ?
by statute or amendment the right of rcpre- i
senlation in Congress by persons whom they ?
themselves bave elected, and not by persons 1
elected for them by a Congressional com- .
fnittee. And every outrage on the ballot *
will accelerate the advent of that dav.
As PAR as built, the Blue Ridge Railroad
liardly pays its running expenses. There
tvill be no increase of business until ike road
to completed, as it passes through a moun
;ain wilderness rich in beauty but poor in
lopulation. Until thc last rail is spiked the
State will have to p3y the interest on thc
line million dollars of bonds which it is iu
rited to endorse.
IT IS rumored that there has been a recon
?iliation between Congressman Bowen and
Alderman T. J. Mackey. The cause of thc
piarrel was not wholly political, as tho Al
lerman went so far as to stigmatize the Con
rressman in the public prints as a thief,
orger and murderer. Bowen, however,
)ocketed the affront, and is now said to have
nade fast friends with bis quondam villifier.
Tho "Actings and Boing?" cf Congress?
Congressman Bowen told the "gentlemen
"of the Comet Star Fire Engine Company,
who serenaded him on Wednesday night,
that he would, in a few days, address his con?
stituents omi render them a faithful account
of all his "actings and doings."
Tho pledge publicly give? to so distin?
guished an audience will doubtless be kept
Congressman Bowen knows now that "mur
"der will out," and, confiding in the large?
hearted charity and indulgence of thc col?
ored "gentlemen of the Comet Star Fin
"Engine Company" and their fellows, will be
glad to make a clean breast of it and tell
his constituents what manner of niau thi
Bowen really is. Thc colored men whom
the distinguished Congressman represents
aro not, it is true, thieves, forgers and mur?
derers, but they are not expected to sit ir
the halls of Congress as the Radical repre?
sentatives of lower Soutli Carolina.
Congressman Bowen, when he renders Iii
constituents the promised account of all his
.'actings and doings," will not forget to ex?
plain that little matter of thc Chinese faro
checks stolen from a gambler in this city.
Tiiis may not lie a doing, but somebody was
done, and thc thief is not yet punished. Bc
sides, there is the part which this C. C.
Bowen is maliciously declared to have taken
in burning and pillaging the town of Jack?
sonville in 1SG1-2. With a breath the spot?
less Congressman may clear away this cloud
of arson and robbery. Nor will it bc for?
gotten that C. C. Bowen-then a captain of
the twenty-first battalion Georgia cavalry,
C. S. A.-was tried by court-martial, found
guilty and cashiered for forging pay rolls, the
result being announced in general orders'
from General Beauregard's headquarters.
Surely Congressman Bowen will take the op?
portunity of showing that he was the inno?
cent victim of a damnable conspiracy, and
that the honest people of Charleston aro not
represented in the councils of thc nation by
a convicted forger. And last of all, thc
"Honorable Congressman" might amuse Iiis
constituents by telling them all about Iiis
arrest and imprisoment for planning thu
murder of Colonel White in 1864, with a de?
tailed explanation of the reasons why he was
suspected and was not hung.
If Congressman Bowen will only tell, in
this way, the tale of his own lifc^ there is a
rich treat in s^orc for all his Radical con?
stituents. . Tile calumnious charges brought
against him are so many and so grave, that
he cannot afford to treat them with honest
scorn or passive contempt-unless Con?
gressman Bowen is of opinion that any sort
of white man i.. good enough to represent
a negro, and that lie is too good fur Iiis con?
stituents, in which case he will most likely
say nothing and allow the world at largo to
think what they please about him. Wc shall
