On the scaffold, he seized hold of the execu?

..-An astounding story is told by a New York '
World correspondent concerning the Port Jervis '
. National Hank. The officers of the institutiou, <
?which was robbed a few weeks since, arc repre- 1
sen ted as having negotiated wita the thieves for ,
Ahe return of $23,000 of the stolen bonds upon the ;
payment of a certain percentage. It ls alleged ?
that the president of the bank, after using every
effort to secure thc burglars, received a letter j
from a prominent attorney In New York, stating
that the town bonds could be negotiated for and
, /procured by means of the latter's efforts, and in
.response to this information the president visited 1
'?he lawyer, stating to him that he had come not i
only prepared to negotiate for the town bonds, <
but for all the securities that had teen stolen. (
This Information resulted in a proposition from
the thieves to return the town and government 1
bonds for twenty per cent, of their value. Infused 1
with the hope of procuring the stolen treasure, it :
is said the bank officers anally concluded to ac?
cede; a second Interview was held, and to their
surprise the burglars said: "If you want those
, bonds you can have them for twenty-five per
?cent, on the town bonds and fifty per cent, on
the government bonds." Having discovered that
they had been trapped by the'heathen, the offi?
cers determined to make the best of the circum?
stances and accordingly agreed to accept the sec?
ond proposition, hoping, it is said, to eventually
secure them without payment of the money. At
a subsequent Interview the percentage agreed
upon ls alleged to have been paid by the officers
of thc institution, and thc $23,000 worth of bonds
given up. "Thc transaction," says thc cones
pondent, "was intended to be kept a profound
secret; a few dc/s have elapsed, .however, and
the matter ls out, and Port Jervis is as gossipy os
ever." The name of the lawyer is not known,
bat the correspondent avers that the president of
the bank can inform all Inquirers.
-The particulars of thc holocaust in a Liver?
pool church are recorded In the foreign papers
received yesterday. A vast congregation had
been gathered together by the preaching of the
Passionists Fathers in the Roman Catholic Chape]
of St. Joseph, in Grosvenor street, Rosehill, which
is at theeentre of one of thc poorest and most
populous parts of the great seaport. The service
wastheconcludlng[one of a very successful series,
and such multitudes hail crowded to it that arter
the chapel was Ulled, thc schoolroom under it was
occupied and crammed, and a supplementary
8ervice was improvised, Willie the two services
were quietly proceeding a drunken man forced
his way into the schoolroom and called out to
the. ^preacher, " I Jiave heard you long
enough. " Some little disturbance was crea?
ted, and some wretched idiot shouted
"Fire." Meanwhile several persons amidst
the larger congregation overhead had just
lighted some wax candles they had taken with
them for the preacher's blessing, and an unusual
glare had thus been thrown upon the chapel win?
dows, which probably confirmed in the minds of
the people outside the suspicion, which the cry of
fire had raised. The cries were repeated; a panic,
seized the schoolroom congregation,, and thej
made a rash for the street. The staircase leading
to the chapel became choked with the dense mass
of struggling people, of whom sixteen were killed,
and a large number wounded. The panic seems
to have communicated itself to the whole crowd
outside the chapel, but to have been allayed with?
in by the heroic exertions of the priests, who con?
tinued the chapel service to the end, and thus re?
tained the greater part of the people in their seats
till the crush was over. The catastrophe would
have been infinitely greater but for thc presence
of mind of thc orticiatlng clergy, and two thou?
sand persons were thus enasled, after the panic
was over, to go quietly and safely to their home?.
Robbing Peter to Pay Pani.
The appraisement of thc real and personal
property of the city will soon be completed,
and the Committee of Ways and Means will
then report to the City Council what rate per
cent, must be collected to meet the expenses
of the city during the current year.
During the year ending on January 1st,
the expenditures for police and for streets
were far larger than they should have been,
Perhaps" the new Mayor found it impossible
to resist the clamor of his colored constitu?
ents; perhaps the new Council thought that
it was of more consequence to satisfy tho
Radical party than to spare the property
owners and taxpayers. Certain it is, that
the expenditures were enormous, and as a
natural consequence the city was compelled
to suspend the payment of the interest on
her debt. We are not disposed, however,
to make what may seem to be captious ob?
jections to the city government. Give us
honesty, ability and economy, and we care
very little whether the Mayor and Aldermen
be Radicals or not And if they will now
turn over a new leaf, spend no more than is
indispensable, and make the city taxes
equable and light, they will not fail to re?
ceive at oar bands all the credit that shall
be their due.
In one particular, an improvement may be
made upon the present financial system, and
to it the attention of Council is now called.
It is customary, in submitting a statement
of estimated income and expenditure, to es?
timate certain amounts as required for cer?
tain specified purposes. Now, we want to see
the expenditure in each department confined
to the amount appropriated to that depart?
ment At present, ii th?ltotaJ estimate be
SI,000,000, it is only required that the
total expense shall not exceed that sum.
The Streets department nay swallow up
twice as much as was expected, and the
Orphanhouse only half las much. But the
city derives no benefit from the saving in
thc Orphanhouse. All the 3aving, and more,
is swallowed up by Streets. The $1,000,000
is spent somehow, and that is the end of it.
This system is all wrong 1 certa. : sum
should bc appropriated to each department,
and each payment should be charged to
its particular appropriation, and the City
Treasurer should not be allowed to pay
out one dollar more on any one account
than the amount appropriated for the
purpose. If this be done, the city will
enjoy the beuefit of a saving in a par?
ticular .department, and will, under no cir
cuinstances, "rob Peter to pay Paul," as is
now the invariable custom.
A Specimen Brick.
The Brooklyn Eagle, in a leading article
published in its issue of tho 1st inst, de?
scribes what it calla the " specimen- bricks"
of South Carolina Radicalism. One of these
is Land Commissioner and Senator C. P.
Leslie who,- as is well known, is an ex
Democrat and an ex-New York General
Assemblyman. In the well-being of Mr.
Leslie the Eagle has a great interest and it
accordingly casts some new light upon the
early career of the distinguished politician.
This is what the Eagle says:
"Seuator Leslie ls described asan 'ex-New
York Democrat and an ex-Democratic legis- j
Iator' from Brooklyn,' hence we feel a local
interest In Leslie's well-being. This notorious
scamp is now a Republican senator of Hie
State ot South Carolina, and State Land Com?
missioner as well. Leslie was chosen during
thc excitement of tho war to represent one of
thc Brooklyn Assembly Districts. A more im?
pudent blatherskite never imposed on any
constituency. Ho came out in his true colors
it.Albany, and passed out of sight with the
:lose of his term. He turned up, however,
n the police courts of New York a few months
ater, as part owner of a house of ill-lame, and
laving escaped the penitentiary, we next hear
>f him as Republican senator of South Ca,o
ina, and Land Commissioner of that most
unfortunate Slate. In great upheavals of
society its representative men rise to the sur?
face. The statesmanship displayed in tho
lolicy of reconstruction blossoms into its ful
est aud rarest perfection in Senator Leslie,
;he ex-pimp and panderer of New York."
Now, we have no reason to doubt
:he truth of this statement, and we ask,
s this a fit person to be entrusted with the
spending of half-a-million of Land Commis^
;ion funds? Nay more, is there an honest
colored man in Barnwell Couuty who is not
?sgusted and ashamed that he should be
mis-represented in the Senate of the State
by this C. P. Leslie?
A fanner in Greenville has two model ten?
One of them, a white man, has lived on
one of his farm for three years, and now
pays more for rent than was produced on
the entire place any year previous to the
last three years. This man is really indus?
trious, and although he has a family of eight
or nine children, has paid, beside his current
domestic expenses, a good portion of a debt
for money advaticed him by his landlord.
The other, a colored man, named Daniel
Seaborne, has been on the farm three yeare
or more, starting with about bread enough
for one year, and two small pigs. At this time,
according to the Greenville Enterprise, he
has as much bacon as he needs; has bought
and paid for two fine milch cows; has a fine
lot of of stock hogs; has a good farm horse,
worth $150, upon which he owes $95; has
plenty of flour for breakfast during the year;
has corn in abundance for bread and stock,
also fodder, and some to sparc; has eighteen
acres of wheat, pul in with his own seed, two
thirds of which proceeds will be Iiis own ;
has a half interest in five bales of cotton,
weighing from 440 to 500 pounds.
These are model workers-model3 worthy
of imitation. And it must be remembered that
theso men had no land commission to help
them, and had no labor commissioner to
meddle with their aliuiri. They weut man?
fully to work; an;l they made money. Work!
work! work! was the sole secret of their
The Effect of the Supreme Court Deel,
The following is a statement of the outstand?
ing obligations of the several States, con?
tracted prior to the operations of the Legal
tender act, and which, therefore, came
under tho cognizance of the conclusions of
the court :
OUTSTANDING DEBTS, CONTRACTED PttlOR TO
New York (less sinking fund)
Louislana (exclusive of Consolida?
ted Bank and Citizens' Bank
North Carolina. 13,116,000
New Hampshire. 809,000

New Jersey. 1,380.000
Rhode Island. 30,000

Thc interest on the South Carolina debt is
now paid in gold, and it is hoped and be?
lieved that the debt falling due may be re?
newed on favorable terms. It has not been
expected to pay the principal of our State
debt in greenbacks, and tho debt is so small,
in proportion to the resources of the State,
that there ought not to be any trouble in ar?
ranging its extension or renewal. The mo?
tives of the Radical ring in "bulling" up the
bonds and stocks of thc State are patent to
every one ; but the fact stands on the re?
cord that we have, in spite of the extrava
gancicS'Of radicalism, a small deb? and un?
We append the remarks of the New York
Commercial Advertiser upon the foregoing
table of before-the-war debt :
"It will then be seen, that $185.000,000 of |
State obligations, thc interest On which, since
1862, has been paid almost exclusively in cur?
rency (except the suspended States,) now be?
come payable, both interest and principal, in
coin. With gold at its present price, this is
equivalent to an addition of about 20 per cent,
to thc debt of the States, as hitherto estima?
ted. Thc decision of the court appears to con?
vey the conclusion that no issues of legal
tenders, in a state of peace, are constitu?
tional, which discourages any speculative
hopes of a further Inflation of the greenback
circulation. It ls open to question whether
thc decision may not affect thc constitution?
ality of the proposed further issues of bank
circulation. National bank notes are now a
legal tender to the banks, between the banks,
and (with certain limitations) to and from the
government. It would seem that no new
Issues ot national currency can possess these
partial legal-tender fu Mons; the inference
being based upon the same grounds as prohibit
the issue of any addition absolute legal-tender
notes by the government."
K. K. K.
The Yorkville Enquirer treats the whole
story of K. K. K. outrages in York as a
political trick, and reports that the State
constables have gone back to Columbia. It
"Deputy Constable Llttlefleld reported that
he found the county In the hands of armed
bands of desperadoes, a statement which we
pronounce false. There are ten townships in
this county, and he garrisoned but one of these.
We do not believe he found any armed bands
in that one; for he says himself that he could
not get evidence to Justiry bim In making any
arrests, a state of affairs which would have
been utterly impossible, had the county been
In the condition he says it was. The "desper?
adoes" must bo of a remarkably timid class, If |
they subsided so quietly upon the approach of
"Thc truth is, the county is In thc hands of j
our civil officers, who have never had any diffi?
culty in making arrests or preserving the
peace when called upon. Littlctlcld lets the
cat out of the wallet, when he says he "lm- ?
mediately organized a military company, and
.rave them arms agreeably to his Instructions."
That's the whole secret. 'His instructions'
was to form a military company first, and
trump up some excuse for it afterwards. And
here ls his excuse. A conversation was over?
heard between two supposed 'desperadoes,'
one of whom said to the other: 'We will con- !
tlnuc these outrages until thc election, and If |
it does not intimidate these Radicals so that
they will stay away from tho polls, we will
take forcible possession of them, and carry the
election next fall at all hazards.'
'Why did not Llttlefleld arrest these two
men and confront them with their accusers ?
That was the evidence ho wanted, and It was
his duty to look into thc matter. If any such
Intentions were expressed, the people of York
want to know who it is that expressed them.
They also desire to know who are the 'des?
peradoes' in their midst. But Llttlefleld was
too wary to commit himself and expose the ut?
ter want of Justification for his course in obey?
ing 'his instructions.' Thc consequence, so
far as he is concerned, ls that nobody believes
the story. The result will bc damaging to
Governor Scott also, who abuses the power
entrusted to him by keeping up a show of pre?
serving order by force, when he must be con?
vinced, if he pays any regard to evidence,
that this is more calculated to promote than
to prevent disturbance. So far as political
effect, is concerned, the Govornor has taken
the wrong method to radicalize York. Take
care of the rebound, Governor, when thia mat?
ter is discussed next summer."

SORGO SUGAR AND REFINED
We would invite the attention of Planters to
the consideration or some or tic advantages In
the cultivation or SORGO as a Crop, which are,
the small amount or labor; the hardy character
or thc plant In its ability to endure, without ma?
terial injury, both drought and wet; tts freedom
from the attack of worms; Its early maturing,
and the fact that thc Seed and every part of tte
plant Ls of great v?!ue.
In consequence m the Imperfect method
hitherto adopted in preparing the Juice of this
Cane, there has arisen a prejudice, and the belief
that Sugar could not be produced, but only a very
Inferior Syrup. But, by the discovery of the
Southern Process, these opinions have been com?

have examined and tested this Process, as they
realize that not only pore Syrup, superior to the
best Chemical Syrups or the Refineries, ls pro?
duced, but also Sugar equal to the best New Or?
leans, in such quantity, as to make it without
doubt, tue most protltable crop that caa bc plant?
