the windows being partially covered by drapery.
English and American nags, rdged with black,
form a part or thc decorations at each end of thc
saloon. The car is neatly carpeted, and in the
eentre is a bier about two feet wide and eight feet
long, covered with black velvet and trimmed with
silver fringe and tassels. The whole elect is som?
bre, but very tasteful. The two passenger cars
which accompany the train are also hung with
the emblem-.' of mourning, folds af black ?nd
whit . serge meeting ir. the centre or the ceiling
from each comer and side of the cars, and the
win lows are also draped. The locomotive of the

-Tranpmann. the murderer of t:ie Kinck family,
was executed at 7 o'clock Wednesday morning.
Notwithstanding thc early hour, the execution
wasw. ncss.-.l by a great crowd of people, who
taunted and yelled at Traupraan as he mounted
thc scaffold. An immense crowd bestf) to gather
in thc neighborhood of thc place of execution at
an carly hour. The scaffold was erected duriug
the night on thc Place de la Raquette. Before
daybreak Wednesday, lleldenreich, the official
executioner, tested the scaffold, fastened the ax
to the block, and proceeded to the prison. The
director of the prison conducted him in person to
the cell of Traupmann, who was pale and excited,
as if liaviug passed a sleepless night. Laying his
baud upon his shoulder, Ikidcnreich addressed
his victim: "Thou lielongest to me." A percepti?
ble shudder passed over Tranpmann's frame as
these terrible words were pronounced, and the
murderer seemed to have lost the self-possession
which characterized him during hts trial. His
.'lands were tied behind his back, a short chain
was put to his feet, which permitted him to make
very short steps. The chain was connected to
thc hands by a rope. Thc prisoner was then
taken to the scaffold, the steps of which he as?
cended quickly, in an agitated manner. After
embracing thc priest, he cried out In a loud
voice: '-I persist I have accomplices."' These
were the last words he uttered. His head be?
ing in the proper place on the block, the pulleys
were adjusted, and the ax fell-the terrible instru?
ment of death-lnstantly severing the neck o? tlie
monster. Extraordinary precautions had been
taken to guard against disorder. Thc police and
military were on the ground in great force, but
their services were not needed.
Thc- Utter Weakness and Folly of n Co?
alition With Nondescript Republicans'
. -Tlie advocates of a coalition, in Hie fast
approaching canvass, with tlie so-called
moderate Radicals, have one great argu?
ment which does double duty as a pretext
and vindication. A continuance of Radical
rule, they say, will ruin the people, and it is,
therefore, high time to put away theory
and fancy, aud, if necessary, stoop to con?
quer. They declare, with laudable energy,
that they are resolved to win, but that the
fight can only be won by linking hands and
joining fortunes with what may be called for
the nonce nondescript Republicans. This
is always .the burden of their song; and,
while, we admit the imperative need that
exists of regenerating the State, and arc
thoroughly determined to whip out Radi?
calism at the fall elections, we unhesitatingly
avow the opinion that an alliance with any
form of Rc ^ublicanism known in South Car?
olina would uip our hopes in the bud, and
give to the Radicals the control of the gov?
ernment for many years to come. Conceding
frankly that we must seek a practical solu ?
tion cf the political problem, and should not
fritter away the golden opportunity of the
hour, it is still evident that a league with
the Radicals contains no one advantage to
compensate for the weakness and dissension
it would uncpiestionably introduce into what
may easily be made a compact and homoge?
"Whence, we may ask, would the hybrid or
nondescript party draw its recruits ? These
would chiefly be drawn from among the pre?
sent Radical officials, whether natives or polit?
ical immigrants. The few respectable Repub?
licans who settled in the State after the war,
who invested their means here, and who
have become a part and parcel of South
Carolina, will undoubtedly side with any
organization known to be hostile to Radi?
calism. And why ? Because Radicalism iu
the Carolinas is thc expression of personal
dishouesty and official corruption. Although
his sympathies lutve been, and are, with what
is known as the Republican party in the
North, every consideration of self-interest
and self-protection will impel the private
citizen to join in any movement to rid South
Carolina of its present or any similar State
government. Ile might, indeed, act with
tlie hybrid party, if it could be formed; but,
in its absence, he would assuredly ally him?
self to any party which arrayed itself in op?
position to the Radical knaves, whose liveli?
hood is one of public plunder and individual
thievery. As regards the respectable Re?
publicans, then, the hybrid policy has no
real advantage over a straight platform and
Many of the Radical officials, the whitened
sepulchres of the party, are ready, of course,
to join mongrelism, whatever thc questiona?
ble shape in which it come. They foresee
the doom of Radicalism, and know that only
by an obliteration of existing parly lines
can they hope to cling to thc power and
place, without which they are deal Every
bod%can name the most prominent among
these Radical officials, who are now iu the
market. They are the glib of speech aud
smooth of mien-whether they hail fruin
Boston or Charleston, whether they publicly
announce their fealty to Radicalism, or deny
the soft impeachment and enter into a
partnership of profit. All these half-way
Radicals-less candid, but not a whit less
rascally than their fellows-would swell the
hybrid ranks. Rut in what beggarly num?
bers ! Ami feeble as would be the accession
of strength from their own votes, the vaunt
ed influence of these political nondescripts
upon the colored vote is even moro con?
ten? pt i I ile.
Outside of the politicians or o?Bce-ho?ding
class, there are three classes of colored peo?
ple: 1. The negroes who are not yet unde?
ceived, and who have a lasting faith in the
oft-promised "forty acres and a mule"
these stand by the League aud will vote
blindly as their leaders direct. 2. The col?
ored people, who see that they have been
bamboozled, but are not altogether decided
to vote against their party. 3. The colored
people, who are directly dependent on the
whites for their livelihood. Now the hybrids
can do nothing with the first class. These
will vote, for the present, the regular Radi?
cal ticket. Were Daddy Cain, or Elliott, or
Whipper, or F. J. Moses, Jr., to club himself
a Conservative, he could not carry with him
a corporal's guard of converts. The secoud
class are ripe, and ready, to fall into the lap
of any parly which has not deceived them,
and which They can trust. They want work,
fair wages, justice, protection, equal rights
all that Radicalism will not give. With the
bold opponents of Radicalism they are likely
lo go, and, if they do not, no alliance of de?
graded natives and greedy carpet-baggers
can either catch or hold thom. The third
class is already on our side. It is the class
which, but for the supineness and effemi?
nacy of our own white people, would have
defeated the Pillsbury Ring at the last
Charleston elections. The respectable col?
ored people did their whole duty. The whites
Where, then, is thc boasted strength of the
mongrel co-operationists? We answer that
it has no strength, no power, no force. By
promises of Governorships, or Lieuteuant
Governorships, or Attorney-Generalships, or
Seats in Congress, or with the bait of social
recognition, it might gain the votes of a few
hundred renegades and adventurers; but,
beyond this, nothing ! Thc movement would,
on the other hr>nd, certainly encounter the
hearty scorn and hatred of thousands of
white men and thousands of colored men,
who know the dillbrenee betwecu right and
wrong, and had rather bc defeated iu a
stand-up fight than support, directly or indi?
rectly, Radical robber}- and corruption.
Mongrelism, hybridism, coalition-call it
what you will!-isa mockery and snare.
We want but two parties in South Carolina.
One, the Radical party-the parly of tyran?
ny, of ignorance, of extravagance, of op?
pressive taxation, of nepotism and fraud.
The other, the party of free trade, free
speech and free press, of personal liberty, of
evcu-handed justice, of equal rights, of eco?
nomical government, and low taxation.
These are the issues of the day, and our peo?
ple know it. They have made up their
minds; and will light Radicalism, unceas?
ingly and untiringly, until it be vanquished
Thc Biggest Job Yet.
We have already noticed the introduction,
in the State House of Representatives, of a
bill to redeem certain obligations of the
State. It authorizes the issue of $324 OOO,
in bonds of the Slate, to pay the principal
and interest of a loan made in July, 18C4-,
and February 1S?5, by the Charleston Sav?
ings Institution to the Rank of thc State.
This monstrous job will, we believe, slick in
the throats of all the Radical legislators who
have not been made to "see light" by in?
The loan was made in Confederate cur?
rency, which in July, 1SG4, wa3 worth about
fire cents on the dollar in gold, and in Feb?
ruary 1SC5, was worth tico cents on the dol?
lar in gold. Now, it is proposed to give
State bonds at par, worth eighty cents on
the dollar, for the full amouut of the princi-1
pal and interest.
Had the claim remained in the hands of
the Charleston Savings Institution, a feeling
of enlarged liberality toward the uufortu
tunate depositors might have induced the
Legislature to do more for them than wt s
strictly equitable and just. But even this
excuse is wanting. At the sale of the assets
of the Charleston Savings Institution the
claim was sold for a song :
$150,000 . 1U00
The bill before the Legislature proposes
to cancel the claim, with interest, by giving :
S324.00O State bonds, worth at 80.$239.200
Cost of the claim. 2,210
Profit on thc job.5230,900
These few ligures ought to swamp the
whole scandalous adair.
LESLIE says that he will not make a full
report of the operations of the Land Commis?
sion until he can submit one that will "sat?
isfy the people." Thc senatorial satellites
chimed in, praising the Commission or com?
missions. It was the old story:
"Tickle me, Johnny ! tickle me do :
"Von tickle me and I'll tickle you."
One senator, however, hinted that it
would take a thousand years to give lands
to the landless upon Leslie's plan, and au
othersaid that this same Land Cominissiou
would bc the ruin of the Radical party.
LESLIE says that he was offered $.'5000 to
support a certain claim, and that he scorned
the proposal. Does the senator remember
that when he was asked, a little while ago,
to support the formation of a new county,
he said frankly : "You know it will take m one}'
to carry it through ?" What did this mean,
unless that somebody was to be bought?
And who? The virtuous senator will please
ATTEMITS are making to stave oil' the
election for Judge of the Supreme Court, so
that Judge Moses and Judge Willard
may not be contaminated by association
willi a negro Judge. These scalawags and
carpet-buggers are growing too proud for
their place. They forget who made thom
thc little that tliev are.
Ont legislators grow more dignified every
day. DeLarge accused Jackson of having
insulted grossly the Charleston Sisters of
Mercy. Jackson Hally denied the truth of
the assertion. DeLarge then exclaimed:
'.Great God! Ananias still lives." This
beats Congress all hollow!
WE PICINT this morning a full and trust?
worthy accouut of the dastardly murder of
Mr. T. J. K. Dargan, nt Graham's Cross
Roads, on the lSth inst. The statement of I
Captain Maurice is clear and direct, and we
hope that thc murderer will be brought
speedily lo justice.
THE bill to grant more money to the Land
Commission was introduced, so it is said,
"to test the sense of the Senate." They

THE proceedings of onr honorable and
dignified Gen Tal Assembly on Friday and
Saturday were even more funny than usual.
Wc print this morning n full abstract of
the speech of Mr. Dawes, delivered in Con?
gress on Tuesday. Mr. Dawes ha3 bad the
courage to tell the plain truth ; but if he per?
severe, he must break with his party. Of
Mr. Dawes, the Journal of Commerce says:
'.From snell a man in such a place ti nth is
precious indeed. The Democrats may howl
till they split thc mighty dome of thc capitol
against the extravagance of the Federal Gov?
ernment, but they will have no more effect on
Radical representatives and the Radical party
than on the cold marble statues that decorate
the pile. Rut when the Radical Mr. Dawes, of
Massachusetts, stands up with thc documents
io prove every word that he says, and inflicts
the faithful wounds of a friend upon the ex?
travagance of thc administration, Radical cars
are pricked up to hear him, and he is not to
be cried down and his damaging statements
disposed of with a Podsnap wave of the hand."
Tl ie pocket nerve is touched, and the end
of Radicalism is nigh!

Hie cultivation ol' SORGO as a Crop, which arc,
Hie small amount ot labor; the hardy character
or thc plant in lu ability to endure, wit bout ma?
terial injury, both drought and wet: its freedom
from thc attack of worms; its carly ma luting,
and the rael that the Seed and every part of the
plant is ot'ixreat value.
In consequence or the Imperfect method
hitherto adopted in preparing the Juice or this
Cane, lhere has arisen a prejudice, ami the belief
that Sugar could not be produced, but only a very
inferior Syrup. But, by thc discovery of thc
Southern Process, these opinions have been com?

have examined and tested this Process, as they
realize that not only pure Syrup, superior to I he
best Chemical Syrups or the Heil aeries, is pro?
duced, but also Sugar equal to the best New Or?
leans, in such quantity, as to make lt without
doubt, tue most profitable crop that can be plant?
