Instances, a few days'rest has been sufficient to
restore thc workmen to health, but recently four
-or the men have died, and forty arc still in thc
hospital, spine very low. but the majority in a
fair way or recovery. At the coroner's inquest
held upon one ,or the persons who had died, a
fellow-workman festlfled that the men who ob.
-served strictly the sanitary regulations establish?
ed by the engiueers would not be injured, and
that he never experlenged any serious effects

-Her i: itannic Majesty's representatives at

costof living In the various countries to which
'they are sent has largely Increased within the
last few years, and that the existing scale or
compensation therefore ought to be, revised in
.-.their favor,' else lt will be a problem to make both
.ends meet.. According to estimates submitted by
the British Diplomatic Corps, the expenses or eni
Dassles In Europe have Increased from seventy al!
the way up to three hundred per cent, within
twenty years, and it Isstated that "a good deal of
th: present dearness or living isalso attrlbutfd io
the number of Americans who are accustomed 0
the high paper prices of their own country, and
aire too apt to observe that every thing is very
cheap, which Induces shopkeepers to raise their
price accordingly." Thc American mission is
also unpncedentedly expensive- and in China
such ls the difficulty of obtaining any Hiing flt to
eat, that sovereigns are expended where shillings
were a few years ago.
-Thc New York papers report In full the open?
ing proceedings of thc trial of Daniel McFarland
tnt killing Albtrt D. Richardson in thc Tribune
?nice, uudercircumstances with which the pub?
lic arc familiar. Mr. McFarland, on leaving pris?
on, entered a street car, accompanied by au oili?
er.-, nobody recognizing him. On arriving at thc
court-room he was admitted by a side door to the
great disgust of bis fellow-citizens who were
waiting to catch a glimpse of hint outside. He
occupies a place beside his counssl. He looks
pale and slight::* emaciated; was neatly dressed
in black, his face smoothly shaved and his
general demanor cool and collected. Soon
after the arrival cf the prisoner he was
joined by his little son Percy. They kissed
each other and entered Into conversation.
McFarland then addressed others freely.
He said he was prepared to meetthe verdict what?
ever it was, but he was confident lt would be fa?
vorable. He was in much better health than
when confined four months ago. Among the
celebrities in court were Mayor nail, nenry
Bergh and Court Joannes. Richardson's brother
was also present, as well as Mr. Sage, Mrs. Rich?
ardson's father. Thc counsel for the prosecution
includes District Attorney Garvin, Noah Davis
and Mr. Fellows. The prisoner is defended by
John Graham, Charles S. Spencer and E. T. Gccry.
The Last Device.
No one can deny the marvellous dexterity
of the Radical politicians. They have adop?
ter1 tr?e principle that words are meant for
the ! u pose of concealment. Whenever they
have an iniquitous measure to pass they
mask it in an honorable name and so "put
"it through." Radicalism is the grandest
humbug of history.
It is plain to every one who has tte slight?
est knowledge of the constitution, that Con?
gress has transcended its powere. The case
of General Ames, who has been thrust into
the Mississippi senatorship at the point of
the bayonet, is the latest case in point. A
senator must be a resident citizen ; Ames is a
citizen of Maine. An election of whatever
sort must be free; Ames had military con?
trol and possession of the ballr?i-box. He
virtually elected himself and actually signed
Iiis own credentials. But Congress has the
right to guarantee to ench State a republi?
can form of government, and is not General
Ames a Republican ? Congress lias the right
to decide upon the qualifications of its mem?
bers, and has it not voted that he is eligible?
Tlie fact is, as Senator Edmunds (Vermont
Radical) stated during the discussion of this
subject, that "the Republican majority in the
"Senate was so strong that senators wore
"apt to decide the question in advance of
'.?ls consideration, and then attempt to Cnd
"reasons for the conclusion at which they
But now it would seem that they begin to
become weary of this effort to lind special
reasons for any act of unconstitutional leg?
islation. Mr. Sumner, in debating the Geor?
gia case, hos found a pretext which will war?
rant all Congressional usurpations. He re?
pudiates "technicalities" as having any bind?
ing authority over Congress, denominating
that body "a high court of equity." Let
the name become current, and the policy of
despotism is complete.
Equity, indeed, according to one of its
first maxims, "follojvs the law;" but it is not
in the sense of a high justice, '.rhich supplies
legal defects, that Mr. Sumn ?r uses tho ex?
pression. To h'i3 hazy ant: unscrupulous
mind, equity is that which supplants thc law.
It is a certain superior law which, at its will,
recognizes or refuses to acknowledge the
relations which the written law establishes,
and follows or departs from the analogy of
that law. For he claims that Congress, as
a high court of equity, lias thc right to vio?
late at once the Constitution of Georgia mid
that of the United States. Mr. Stevens said
that the reconstruction measures of Congress
were outsiile of the constitution. And now
Mr. Sumner claims that Congress may go
outside of the constitution whenever it will,
aud may stay lhere as long us it pleases. It
is a law unto itself.
We begin to look upon all these preten?
sions with n certain sense of amusement
Mr. Sumner reminds us of another vaporing
pedant, by name Jaine3 I o? England, who
was quite his equal both in courage and in
sense. As the monarch was perpetually
boasting of his prerogative and kingcraft,
while tho reins of authority continued to slip
from Ilia hands, so thc senator, with his party,
brags and collapses. Like Jonah's gourd,
the bloated night-growth is waving and
willing in lim sunshine.
After awhile the South will be represent ed
in that high court of equity-we mean not
General Ames' South, nor cadet Whitte
morc's South, but the peuple, in the persons
of their chosen repr?sentatives. A? the pre?
sent schism in the Radical party deepens
and thc dissatisfaction at the West increases,
and Hie political power drifts away from New
England in either direction, an opportunity
for new political alliances will be afforded.
Whatever theory of government may pre?
vail, we shall regain our rightful place in tho
Connells of Hie nation. The gallant life
which breasted invading myriads, and has
already redeemed industrial and financial dis?
aster, cannot be crushed out by any tribunal
which Radicalism may establish at Wash?
ington. Whether it be masked as a high
court of equity, or unmasked tts a low lobby
of iniquity, matters not.
Commodore Mn ur y and Fo"clgit Immi?
We print to-day a letter received by Wm.
M. Lav/ton, Esq., thc president of the South
Carolina Institute, from Commodore M. F.
I Maury. In this letter, Commodore Maury
sums up, with characteristic lucidity, both
the advantages to the South of foreign im?
migration, and the reasons why it is imprac?
ticable for the South to obtain any large
number of immigrants without energetic
concert of action. The point mude by Com?
modore Maury iii relation to direct trade, will
be forcibly felt in connection with the inter?
ests of Charleston, and none can doubt that,
before we can obtain the immigration so
earnestly desired, we must disabuse the
mind of the foreigner of hi3 prejudices
against the South, besides assuring him that
he wi,ll have hero far greater advantages,
and far better opportunities of advance?
ment,'than can be found in North or West
The convention which meets in Charleston
in May will, we are sure, discuss the whole
matter, and it is suggested that the propri?
ety be considered of taking slops to secure
concert of action, among the Southern Slates
east of the Miaafesippi, upon ?he subject of
uumigraliwi. Each State can work vigor
ously for itself; but the whole South work?
ing together eau incur expenses and under?
take responsibilities which would be far too
heavy for any single State.
Thc "Etna Fire Engine Company.
The statement in THE NEWS of Wednes?
day that "at a meeting of the ?Etna Fire En
"gine Company, held on Monday, it was re?
solved that this company would join iu
"the (annual) parade in the usual manner,"
was made upon what appeared to us to be
unquestionable authority. That statemeut,
moreover, agrees in substance willi thc ofli
cial record of thc proceedings of the meet?
ing referred to ; for there is not in Charles?
ton, we presume, any white man so wild as
to suppose that the ?Etna Fire Company
would parade unless a majority of the white
volunteer companies did thc same.
Our Washington correspondent writes that
some leading Radical Congressman are urg?
ing President Grant not to recommend the
passage of a resolution of universal amnesty
for offences committed during the war. The
carpet-bag members are vehement in their
opposition to amnesty, and declare that the
time has not come for a general removal of
political disabilities. This last was to be
expected; but President Grant can see for
himself that the ?nasses of Ute people call
for universal amnesty u.r.'i pardon, us the
crown of the work of reconstruction. This
seeni3 to be thc temper in the North. And
in thc South a universal amuesty would go
far to procure for thc present administration
the respect, if not the affection, of the people.
