morning. During thc interview, which lasted
an beor, the political situation was fully dis?
cussed. The President said that although his
first impressions were that thc action of the
Legislature, previous to the expulsion of thc
colored mercers, was legal and binding, and
the election of senators was to hold good, he
was satisfied, aRer more mature reflection,
that the present Legislature Js the first
legal organization, and that all action should
be begun de novo. He asked who thc Repub?
licans would select as senators. The delegation
replied that the nominations would probably
be made on Monday, and the election take
place on Tuesday, and that, no doubt, they
would bc loyal Republicans.
The President said that both he and Genoral

is very long and discusses at groat length tho

had no right to make government notes a
legal tender for pre-existing private debts. lt

EXECUTIVE O UTE A O E.
Commuting Ihe Sentence or :.. Diaboli?
We take tho following article frcWfhc Ches
Governor Scott has commuted thc sentence
of Abram Chambers, Sr.. colored, sentenced
to be hung for thc murder ol' his child five
years old,, tb Imprisonment for life.
This he has done without troubling himself
to impure into the facts ot' the most diabolical
murder ever heard ol' In this community. If
Abram Chambers does not deserve to die, we
cannot conceive of a case in which Ute death
penalty should be enforced, and Governor
Scott's aetio.i in the premises amounts to
nothing less than an abolition of capital pim?
islinietit in South Carolina. If the Legislature
is anxious to lind a subject for impeachment
on the ground of a total disregard for existing
law, it may be found in this arbitrary Governor.
The evidence lu the case of Abram Cham?
bers disclosed tile must deliberate, cold-blood?
ed diabolism wc have ever heard or read of.
He Innig his children up by the thumb for hours
ata time, and in one instance from Circe
o'clock in tile afternoon until the next morn?
iug. Ile hung them by thc neck (and this
little boy among them) until lifo appeard tu be
extinct. He bout it with a board, kicked it
with bis feet, aud persisted in Iiis cruelty until
the little Hiing could only in a hoarse whisper
beg for mercy; and filially he Killed it, and gin?
ned in the acouipiishnieitt ol'his hellish deed.
Enough ! The community knows the horrible
tacts ol'the case, and understands thc motives
ol'lire Governor's conduct.
If Abram Chambers does not vote at the
next election, we shall be surprised.
TUE LATE BATTLE IS CUBA.
Jordan's Victory at Guaimarc-Pucllo
Defeated anil Driven Huck by the In?
surgents under Jordnn, &c.
Thc accounts which have reached us by mail
of thc battle of Coalman), Cuba, between thc
Spanish troops, under Fuello, and thc insur?
gents, under General Jordan and Colonel
Bcauvllliers, seem to leave no doubt ol the dis?
astrous defeat ol' Fuello, and thc fact that this
was one ol tho most important engagements
of the war.
General Puello left thc line of the Kucvitas
and Principe Railroad on Christmas day willi
2.100 picked Spanish troops, six pieces of artil?
lery and provisions amply sufficient for eight
or ten days. His destination was Cascorro
and Guairaaro, the Cuban capital, as indicated
in a proclamation ot' his issued u few days be?
t?re, and in which he also boasted that, .sword
in hand, ho would seek, find and destroy theene
my; that he would show no quarters. He made

gents, who were entrenched before Glialmuro,
January 1st. and after three repulses was
forced lo retreat, closely followed by Hie Cu?
bans, to Arroyo Hondo, where lie wu's besieg?

on the 1st, though it is reported thal Beau

that Hie insurgents did not toilow the retreat?

on at least one occasion of which I am aware,
that they could, in reference lo ante-bellum

We are still engaged in discussing thc "Wa?

county bonds to be vested in trustees, and
they tb manipulate the entire enterprise; the
bonds made payable upon a long time, and
thc people taxed only to keep down Hie in?
terest. The scheme, of course, is to make the
dividends of their stock pay for the utterest
upon thc investment, and by dexterous man?
agement the stock of the company may be
made to pay the principal of thc bonds. If
thc road is a success, this will bc practicable
with some little aid from the people, and the
property throughout thc line of its roule will
be doubled or trebled in value.xThc bill author?

A STRANGE EPIDEMIC.
The "Relapsing Fever"-Wh-, thc New
York Ph y-.?cia ns Say About lt.
An epidemic classed by thc medical profes?
sion as tlie "relapsing fever'"-a disease hith?
erto unknown in the United States-has, with?
in tlie last two or three months, made ils ap?
pearance in Hie City of Now York, occurring
among the uiost. destitute classes.
Epidemics of thc disease have occurred fre?
quently abroad, in Germany, Russia anil the
British Isles. Like typhus, it is a famine, fever,
occurring in times of general distress, lind at?
tacking in thu first place the poorest classes of
the community. Those who keep up with thu
medical literature of the day have noted seve?
ral months buck that this disease had made its
appearance lu London, and that numerous
cases had been there received into thu hospi?
tals. Thence it has doubtless been brought,
ki spite of quarantine regulations, lo our own
country. Th ^ complaint ordinarily begins
with asevere chill, followed by the usual phe?
nomena of lever. These continue to in?
crease, until alter three, lour or live, br snine
iiuies .-ix days' copious perspiration terminates
thc attack. The patient, reman?s free of thu
fever, tliotigh often ieebie and ailing. About
tho fourteenth day from thc commencement ol
tim a'Anck, a second chill supervenes, followed
by phenomena similar to those of the first at?
tack. Sometimes a second relapso occurs
about Hie twenty-first day, ami cases arc re?
corded in which a third anti even a fourth
have been observed. Though during the le?
ver Hie symptoms are violent anti the pulse
very frequent, and thc temperature high, thu
disease ls attended with comparatively lilli?!
danger, the mortality commonly not exceeding
four or five per cent, lt spreads by coulagiun
like oilier pestilences. When il once becomes
epidemic, tai? cases are by no menus confined
lo tito poor and needy.
Ur. Klisba Harris, sanitary superintendent,
ttt Hie request bf. the Beard of Health, has just
prc jw ed an official report concerning tlie re
inpshig lever. Tho doctor says there are now
eighty-five persons suffering from it; that it ls
contagious and epidemic; that noi uiifVeqiientlv
whole groups arc attacked by it, and that it
closely resembles tlie famine fever which pre?
vailed some years ago in Ireland, and attacks
those who five on poor food or are of intem?
Furthermore, we ure told thc disease was
never seen on this continent before; though in
1842 something liku it appeared in Philadel?
phia, and in 1852 In Buffalo, having come by
immigration from Canada. lu the hospital
there are nine persons in one family down
with it. Thu disease prevails chiefly amoug
the cellar population in James, Oliver und
Cherry streets. In order to prevent ils spread,
tile tit.clor recommends a general cleariug otu
and cleansing of these lilihy habitations.

XO IMPERIAL MERCI".
An apprehension existed that, the Imperial
clemency might be exerted in his behalf so far
as thc capital punishment was concerned. Tho
only foundation for an assumption so Improba?
ble, was the belief expressed by the Republi?
cans that thc Emperor would avail himself of
this opportunity of creating a precedent for
the more lenient treatment of his cousin. I
need scarcely say to you that the interests of
the dynasty are involved iii thc rigid and Im?
partial execution of thc sentence of the High
Court of Justice in regard to Prince Pierre
Bonaparte, whatever that sentence may be.
There must be no dallying with the necessi?
ties of the case such as wits exhibited in con?
nection with the offence ol' Prince Achille
Murat, who, I am glad to say, is at last to be
brought to trial. All further speculation In
regard to Tranpinann has, however, been put
an end to by his execution this morning, and
therefore it is nnocessary to say anything more
in reference to the reports which have been
circulated in regard lo the probability ol' the
commutation ol' his sentence.
Thc neighborhood of thc prison in which the
murderer lias been confined has presented all
the aspects of a fair since his appeal lo thc
Court of Cassation has been rejected. For the
last three or four nights, there could not have
been less than from thirty lo forty thousand
people on thc spot. The patience which they
exhibited, and the endurance ot thc damp and
cold which they supported during thc long
watches ol' thc night, afforded melancholy
evidence of what people will be content to
snfler for the gratification ol a morbid, or, lo
speak more accurately, a savage curiosity.
For the last three days and nights, all the
restaurants, cafes, eating houses and tobacco
shops of Hie Boulevard have been doing an
immense business. They have never closed
for an hour during the whole period.
TUE PRISON Or LA HOQUETTE
marks thc last stage in the career of thc crimi-.
nal who is destined to expiate with lils life his
offences against society. It ls enclosed by a
high wall, which leaves only the upper stories
visible. Thc executions of criminals take
place on thc open ground comprised between
the prison and thc Rue la Roquette, the scaf?
fold being erected in front of thc principal
entrance. Five 6ione Hags of oblong shape,
Inserted In thc pavement, serve nt once to
indicate Hie spot and support thc framework
ol' tho temporary construction.
TUE INSTRUMENT OF UEATH.
Shortly before midnight two large vehicles
arrived in front of thc prison. One ol' llicin
contained ihc timber joists forming the frame
work ol'Hie scaffold. Throttler was destined
to receive the body ol the murderer alter thc
execution. Thc executioner's aids immedi?
ately proceeded to put together the wood-work
composing Hie scaffold and the guillotine, and
thu wagon intended lor the body was drawn
up alongside thc walls of thc prison. The
platform was erected on pine trestles, which
..?ere adjusted on the Hags to which I have
made allusion to above. The two arms of the
guillotine wen; then elevated and fixed. The
Work was carried on by the light of a lantern,
held by a child about ten years old.
MONSIEUR PE PARIS.
An old roan, small in stature, and clad in a
shiny hat and a long rusty pallctnt, directed
the operations, smoking a pipe all the time.
This was M. Hublot, first aid of Monsieur de
Paris. The executioner, M. Heidcnrclch,
stood atllie foot ol'Hie scaffold superintending
thc operations ot his assistants. Hu is a fine
lookiug man, with white hair and whiskers,
piercing eyes, and hands aud feet almost as
small and delicate as those of a woman. He
was dressed in a long black overcoat, anil
wore a white silk handkerchief round his neck
by way ol a muflier. "M. de Pai ls," as he Is
traditionally called by virtue of his office, is a
bachelor aud property owner. While his aids
were completing the erection of the guillotine,
the chief executioner proceeded to the prison,
signed, the order back, and took formal posses?
sion of the criminal. After this he smoked a
cigarette, and then, it Is said, drank off a
bowlful ot' milk.
When the arrangements connected with thc
guillotine had been completed, the duel' exe?
cutioner ascended Hie platform tn satisfy him?
self thal it worked well. This was about 2 in
thu inoriiitig. On descending again he put on
his overcoat, which ho had bud aside in order
to try the machine, and walked about for
awhile to warm himself. The morning lind
become very cold. I lie anxiety and impati?
ence of the crowd were now visibly on thc In?
crease. The (?ardes de Paris and the Scrgens
de Ville had difficulty iu preventing it from in?
vading Hie open space in front of Hie prison,
and i mis interfering with Hie operations of the
executioner and his assistants. In the avenue
and streets leading lo the place thc multitude
was so compressed that many became ill and
fainted. Every n ee which commanded a view
of the plaice of execution was black with the
gumms of tho Faubourgs. II. wassail! Ulai
one of Hiern fell from lils perch, and was killed.
The crowd sang aud hooted to while away the
weary hours. Thc scene was indescribably
disgusting to any one ol'Hie least sensibility.
At S o'clock Hie vehicle which was to convey
Hie body to its last resting place, at Clamait,
took up its station at the loot ol' Hie scaffold,
so as lo permit Hie basket containing Hie head
to be lowered into it immediately utter Hie cx
At a few minutes before six, accompanied by
thc executioner, these two assistants, the gov?
ernor and some warders, the priest entered
Traupinann's cell. The prisoner had slept but.
little, and euell lime Hutt he fell into a dose lie
suddenly started up, a prey to the most gloomy
anticipai inns. Tile men who had the charge
ol watching him ailinn that such had been lue
case, more or less, ever since his condemna?
tion. When the sinister party entered the
cell. Traiipmaiin was lying on Hie bcd with
his face towards thc wall, and not asleep.
When Hie head ol'Hie prison placed his liam]
on bis shoulder, Hie prisoner was seized willi
a convulsive trembling, which increased visi?
bly when the tala) words were uttered: tkTratl|>
mann, your application lor commutation has
been rejected. The hour hus come !" The un?
fortunate man then turned round, and, regard?
ing with a haggard eye Hie persons near, could
scarcely rise. "The chaplain advanced, and en?

his last moments think ot' Cod.
IIIS PERSISTENT DENIAL OF GUILT.
The chief ol' the deled ive police now ad?
dressed him :
"Traupiiiann, now that your last moment
approaches, will you confess your crime V
'.No,'' he replied in a firm voice, "Hut is lo
suv, I have been guilty, but liol ol' murder; I
have not killed any one."
uVou persist in your assertion about your

All eyes were fastened on thc criminal, and
all present held t'ieir breath.
"No," he curtly replied.

took back the clothes which it had lent, not
given, to the culprit, the straight jacket was
taken off. for he was to die iii his own clothes,
(hose which hu lind worn when arrested and
which had . been scrupulously preserved.
Traupmann's sangfroid during this operation
was extraordinary. His look was linn, with?
out insolence, and his movements quiet and
easy. He buttoned his Shirt carefully at the
cull's, made sure that lt set well, and stooped
to pm on his shoes slowly and quietly us a

attached to Hie chapeau, is composed of a
angular blade of steel, fixed by means of tl
?roil pins into a leaden haft, called the "n

A iionninLK THEORY-now BOON DOES TM
GUILLOTINE END CONSCIOUSNESS?
The execution of Tranpmann, in Paris, hu
revived the old question whether death in
slantaneohsly follows upon the severance ol
tho head from the body. lu a letter lo Hie
Gaulois, Dr. Plnel asserts that decapital ion
tines not immediately affect thc brain. Thc
blood willoh (lows after dc:upiiution conies
from thc large vessels of the neck, and lhere
is hardly any call upon thu circulai ion ol'Hie
cranium. The brain remains intact, nourish?
ing itself with the blood retained by the pres?
sure ol' the air. When tho blood remaining In
Ihe head at tho moment ol separation is ex?
hausted, t Itere commences a stale, not oKjlcuth,
but of inertia, which lasts up to the moment
when the organ, no longer fed, ceases to exist.
Dr. Pine! estimates that the brain linds nour?
ishment in the residuary blood fur about an
hour after decapitation. The period of inertia
would last for about two hours, and absolute
death would not ensue till after the spaee ol'
three hours altogether, ff, he athis, a bodiless
head indicates by no movement the horror of
its situation, lt. is because it is physically im?
possible that it should do so, all the nerves
which serve for tlie transmission of orders
from the bruin to the trunk being severed.
But there remain the nerves of hearing, uf
smell and of sight.

-Thc New York papers speak in the highest

-Miss Cushman has reached her house in

which a surgical operation has been performed.
-A Chinese theatrical company in Califor?

one historic drama in ninety acts, each act oc?
cupying one evening.
-A Paris correspondent, speaking of Mlle.
Nilsson's return, after an absence of eight
months, says that "her face is not quite what
lt was," but admits that her voice is "as rich
and gloriously full as ever."
-Miss Kate Field ls said to devote much
time to the study of Mr. Fodder's acting, with
a view to writing a critical analysis of his style,
which will bc good news to the readers of the
Pen Photographs of Mr. Dickens.
-A\rausician at a Monaco casino lately
bought a bottle of champage, and, sitlingdown
to the piano, he played thc gayest music and
drank his wine until but a single glass remain?
ed; into this ho poured a vial of prussic acid,
drank it off, and began a solemn funeral
march, which only ended witii his death. '
-Edwin Forrest, writing to a friend in Bos?
ton, says: "I hope Mr. Fechter will be a suc?
cess, for In such plays as the "King's Motto,"
I presume he is without a rival. If he acts In
Boston I hope you will go and see him. He is
doubtless a most finished artist-having been
educated in thc best schools of art. The best
reason to be given that thc Bohemians of New
York dare not pronounce definitely upon the
merits of his acting is, that they have not thc
Intellect to comprehend it. Had they seen any
other actor of eminence In the parts, they
might have said he was better or worse than
lie who gave them thc first light on thc sub?
ject. That is the total of their criticism."
-Letters from Lima mention thc presence
in that city of two rival prima donnas.
They are Italians; one very young; both very
pretty, and both distinguished singers. A
great rivalry exists between them; each ls so
jealous of thc other as to make herself ridicu?
lous, and there is really nothing to choose be?
tween thc two. One has thc most finished ex?
ecution, tlic other the richest, most thrilling
of voices. Each one has hosts of admirers,
and such presents, ovations and receptions as
are accorded to each one on her particular
night were never equalled even in New York.
So great is thc excitement as to remind a cor?
respondent of the famous lurore over Jenny
Lind In Castle Cardeu, when she sung there
so many years ago. On the last benefit
night of Marchctli, one of the donnas, thc
boxes sold for forty soles each, and one Ameri?
can millionaire, Mr. Harry Meiggs, paid $500
for two boxes. The chair of state the Presi?
dent uses on grand occasions (and made of
gold,) was sent to the lady covered with flow?
ers, and she was brought on to the Btage seat?
ed in it. Her presents in diamonds alone were
something marvellous. But now a new star
has arisen. There has Just arrived from San
Francisco an Irish-American prima donna,
who luis been educated in Italy, and who is
said to eclipse the Italian singers. She makes
her first appearance in the-.Trovatore, and ru?
mor says will prove a dangerous rival. She is
the wife of the harbormaster ot San Francisco,
and possesses a rare voice, but it will need a
great attraction to excel the Italians, Marcliet
ti and Mollo. The tenors, Bacccl and Gracio,
and the baritones, Orlandini and Fabrina, are
also pronounced admirable by the music-lov?
THE REACTION BEGUN.
Agressive Measures-It ad leal Vindic?
tiveness Satisfied-What thc Ultra
Radical.s Say-Danger of a "Lct-U-i to
thc Party Organization-Hallucina?
tion of thu North-Reaction.
A Washington Idler of thc 1th Instant to
the Baltimore Gazette says :
I havAukon some pains lo ascertain thcstaT
tits of members of* the Senate and House upon
the question of furl her aggressive measures by
thc Radical leaders, and amable to state that
Hie majority in the House ol' Representatives
and a minority of considerable and increasing
strength in thc Senate are disposed, at last, to
pause before taking anot her step in the direc?
tion ol'civil revolution. Thc uegro has been
set at. liberty. He has been accorded thc bal?
lot (when millions of whites have been dis?
franchised;) he has been .put in the Jury box;
allowed lo testily in courts in cases civil and
criminal, where whites alone were concerned;
the children ol' his race have been provided,
at the public expense, with ample means of
?ducation, and his equality enforced by law in
?di public conveyances, theatres, houses of en?
tertainment and public edifices; and, finally,
lie has been lifted to the highest positions In
thu government-executive and legislative.
Correspondingly tile whites have been de?
It would be difficult, indeed, for thc dominant
party to ?o further on in the direction of ele?
vating Hie neirro or oppressing the white race.
Vet it is felt by many astute "Radical leaders
that to pause lor nu instant, in this respect,
would be deatli to their organization. This ar?
gument (unquestionably sound) hus thus far
dragged uloiur many unwilling voles, which
served io swell their Congressional majorities.
But I mn now assured, by many in whom I
have the utmost confidence, that even the cer?
tain dismemberment ol' the Republican party
will not induce an effective majority in Con?
gress (even us af present organized) to follow
Sumner ami Buller an inch further in their
road lo inevitable ami final ruin.
Tile negro, whoever may say to thc contrary,
has all aloug been the sheet-anchor ot the Rail
lical party. Upon no other question could it
Ilia ve been made a unit under Hie lash of New
England. The hallucination of the Northern
mind upon tills one point is the most marvel?
lous phenomenon the world ever witnessed.
At this moment many Northern voters (who
know nothing at all ol' thc race) would not
hesitate to go the length of its deification.
Hitherto every other question has been made
subservient to this one idea. Even hatred of
secession and vengeance against secessionists
owe mud), if not all, of their demoniacal ma?
lignity to Hie perfect madness possessing the
popular mind upon this subject, constantly ex-.
cited, as it has been, by the lies of a purchased
and unscrupulous press. The end of the
'ether has al last been reached. "Othello's
No one can exaggerate the importance of
flic reaction that has taken place in the past
few days. Freed from Hie incubus which
weighed so heavily upon members, and from
caucus dictation, its acknowledged effect, the
great questions of the tariff, currency, taxes,
Ac, may now be discussed and voted upon
with respect alone to the interest of Hie coun?
try ut large. If Western and Southern mein
berg shall, therefore, now be found voting for
thc Eastern money changers, bondholders and
manufacturers, the excuse bf party shackles
imposed in deference to the eternal and infer?
nal negro question will not avail them. They
must stand out in bold relief as purchased cat?
tle also much a head.
It must be acknowledged that the evident
reaction referred to lias been purchased at a
heavy and degrading price. But lt seems ne
grophillsra, like the morus mu?icaulis fever,
must needs run Its course. It has now culmi?
nated. The day is not far distant when the
whole country will look back with wonder?
ment at its infatuation, and hasten quickly and
effectively to retrace its steps. In the mean?
time we must have patience, and do the best
we can under improved prospects.
You will sec that Democrats and Conserva?
tives in Congress are becoming more lively
and independent than when (a short time ago)
they were under the dally apprehension of ex?
pulsion, or worse. Their conduct to-day baa
been unexceptionable. Let them hereafter
hold up their heads manfully. The threats of
Morton and Sumner, and lintier and Hoar have
become vapor indeed. Such men are no looper
tile Robespierre*, the Dantons and Manu?" of
America. They are forever, from this mo?
ment, shorn of their strength for further mis?
THIS POPE, TRUTH AND LIBERTY.-The Pope,
at his last public reception, which was attended
by about fifteen hundred persons, made?
speech, a portion of which, at least, Is worthy
of being recorded :
"Some," eaid he, "believe that the Council
will be of no service, and they laugh at lt. I
am a poor man, a poor miserable, but I am the
Pope, tile Vicar of Jesus Christ, the chief of
the Catholic Church, and I have assembled this
Council, which will do its work.
"Pretentious sages desire to have certain
questions handled with caution, and that we
should not go on against the Ideas of our time.
But I say, and I do repeat, that we must speak
the truth in order to establish freedom; that
we must never shrink from proclaiming the
truth and condemning the error. I want to be
free as the truth."
A French paper commenting on these words,
Plo IX ls right, a thousand times right. If
we want liberty wc must love truth, which is
justice. The actual ministry will give us liber?
ty in France, because lt ls composed of honest
men who want liberty and Justice.
