It ls suggested that while the exhibition shall be
of old hats, lt shall also include hats of all ages.

Government takes measures to encourage immi?
gration to supply the deficiency: but the immi?
grants do not remain there. Of the 53,000 who
landed there last y car, only l3,eoo remain.
-President Grant received a letter recently
from Mrs. Abraham Lincoln, stating that she was
still In Germany and not in very good health, but
very much lu need or assistance. This she sees
has beeu proposed in ihe bill pending in the Sen?
ate to give her a pension, bnt the delay m acting
ou lt she is unable to account for. The President
will probably send the letter to either a Senate or
House committee. The Senate pension commit?
tee, however, agreed to report a bill giving Mrs.
Lincoln a liberal pcrsion.
-Wasldngton correspondents complain that
the Funding bill ls still allowed to sleep from day
to dar in committee, notwithstanding thc pres?
sure from all quarters to have it speedily dispos?
ed of. The attempt to perpetuate the income tax
hangs Ure, and there is an evident determination
on the part of numerous representatives not to
place their names on the record as having aided
In continuing the odious burden. Sumner has
given notice that when the bill to abolish the
Trunking privilege comes up he shall offer a sub?
stitute establishing a uniform rate of one cent
postage. There ls much scandal afloat about a
distribution of the State bonds of Georgia to In- 1
fiuence legislation concerning that State. Cyrns :

-A Washington letter to the-Richmond Dis?
patch says: "The much talked-or amnesty mos
sage to Congress, which your correspondent stat?
ed correctly was prepared and Intended to be
transmitted tdFboth Houses as soon as Texas and
Georgia were admitted, appears to have been
abandoned by thc President, for the present at
least. It appeara that the Executive was very
decided at first ia his determination to send this
message to Cmgrcss, but thc announcement of
this fact aroused the extremists of the Radicals, ,
who beset General Grant, and have, by raisrepro- (
sentatlons of the feelings of Hie Southern people,
induced bim to forego his laudable purpose. Ho '
ls becoming more aud more a man or putty each
day, and In the hands of these schemers ls
but an Instrument to respond to their behests. |
The secret of this ls that he desires to bc re-elect?
ed to the Presidency. He will lose the credit that
he might have gained by the amnesty message,
for Congress will, before Its adjournment, pass a
bill ol general amnesty. Tins they acknowledge
must be accomplished in order to put the Radical
party on good tcrm3 with the Suutn."
-Rev. Chas. B. Smyth, a sensation preacher or
New York, who flrst gained notoriety by lils ,iecu
Har sermons on thc-Black Crook." held forthin
thc Eleventh street Presbyterian Church last Sun?
day, ^nd performed many strange antics, not
only lu the pulpit, but elsewhere. He discussed
the McFarland encounter, demanding a law pre.
scribing death as the pnuishment for adultery,
and after finishing his sermon, called together
six reporters who were present and asked them
out for refreshments. He led them to a liquor
and refreshment saltton on the avenue near by.
Beefsteaks and oysters having been ordered,
Smyth turned to tjic reporters and asked them
what they would drink. Their orders having
been given', he himself requested the barkeeper
to bring him'-some of the same." Tills turned
ou to be gin and milk, of the former of which
liquids his reverence took five Angers, swallowing
the dose with evident relish. The viands having
been disposed of, all arose to leave, and Mr.
Smyth, turning to the barkeeper, carelessly re?
quested him to "hang that up." The barkeeper,
who seemed to know him, saul. "All right !" ami
the party passed ont and separated.
-Prince Erle made his debut as colonel of thc
Ninth New York Regiment on Thnrsday evening
by marching, In thc moonlight, down Fifth Ave?
nue, at the head of his troops. Mr. Fisk ls suld
to have looked every inch a colonel, ne wore a
dark bine swallow-tall coat of thc flaest cloth,
with light blue pantaloons made iu the prevailing
tight fashion, which displayed to great advan?
tage the muscular proportions of hts manly limbs.
These trousers had a red stripe with a broad,
double braiding of gold. His expansive ctust
was crossed by a brilliant gold lace pouch belt,
and his waist was spanned with a sword belt or
the same co3tly material. On his Napoleonic
head rested the shako of the regiment, which was
Surrounded by a large crimson panache. The
march was a triumphal procession from begin?
ning to end, and thousands of people lined thc
sidewalks along the enUre route, giving vent to
their very warm feelings of admiration by re?
peated cheers. The regiment appeared in excel?
lent trim, and the new colonel spoke to various
members of his starr, in thc warmest terms, or the
pride h1? felt Intaking charge or so tine a body or
mea. It was remarked that Colonel Fisk bore a
striking resemblance to the elder Napoleon.
-A notorious desperado and murderer, accounts
of whine villainy and crnel deeds of blood have
often been chronicled by thc California and Ari?
zona papers, has at last been overtaken by jus
tice, aud a summary and fearful punishment ad?
ministered for his numerous crimes. He was
km-- a;, lhe '.Arlzona RUman-i antl fCnred ty
everybody. A few years ago he robbed an old
Sau Francisco jeweller of $20,000 worth ol" jewelry,
after beating him nearly to death. The police
searched for the villain for months, and Anally
caught him at Fort Prescott, Arizona, where he
had just arrived from Mexico. He was a tall,
raw boned individual, named John Kelley. While
confined at the f ?rt, which ls situated on a rocky
precipice, llfty feet above a stream, he broke
.'rom his guardhouse one night, dashed past thc
sentinel, a id leaped boldly over the clltf. escaping
without injury. He was next heard of at thc
Santi Rita mine it Vrteona, where he worked at
blacksmithing and tried to .-iai> thc superinten?
dent of thc minc, a Mr. Grosvenor. Before lear
lug he took one bf thc employees of the mine to
his rooms, where he opened his mink and cx
hiliiieri to him eighteen pairs of human ears,
which he said he had cut from tie heads of
eighteen persons that he had killed; and sald*he
had taken an oath to increase the number to twen
ty-tive ere he had stopped. Several months ago he
brutally murdered a family of four persons near
El Palso del Norte, for the sake of a few dollars.
Ile was anally captured at Arizona by some of
the inhabitants who quickly wreaked their ven?
geance on him. He was taken into a wood some
distance from the city, where they tied one end
or? rope to the limb of a tree, and to the other
fastened Kelley by the heels, so that his head
hung within a few feel nf thc ground. They then
built a slow Dre under him and allowed him to
remain suspended uutird.eath put an end to his
WE understand that at a meeting of citi?
zens cf Charleston County, held in this cit}',
last evening, it was determined lo make ar?
rangements for calling, in due time, a Mass
Meeting of citizens, irrespective of class,
color, or uational politics, for the purpose of
appointing delegates to the convention pro?
posed by thc Anti-Rad ?cal Press Conference,
to bc held in Columbia, on June 15th,
'r ? i '*
Barnacle TItc & Co.
The Do-Nothing school of politicians, and
their equally inert disciples, declare, with
mingled pathos and bathos, that only a pas?
sive resistance should bc offered to the rule
of Extravagance and Corruption, ^t?h is
fast driving South Carolina to the very brink
of financial bankruptcy and commercial
ruin. At the same time, these very Barna?
cles are tolerably well aware that they would,
themselves, find it extremely difficult to earn
their daily bread, if the majority of their
fellow-citizens clung with like tenacity to the
mouldering timbers of the past. Lolling on
luxurious cushions, dabbling in stocks and
bonds, or practicing a lucrative profession,
Barnacle Tite & Co believe that life enough
will he left i" the Old State, In any event, to
support them and theirs. Lest they should
soil their dainty digits, lest the breezes
of heaven should blow too roughly upon
their cherubic countenance, they decline to
wag a tongue or raise a hand for the salva?
tion of their people. But they will eagerly
seize upon every advantage which a reformed
government can give them. They refuse,
now, to work with thc party of Retrench?
ment and Reform. But they will instantly
claim their full share of the benefits of low
taxation anti equal representation,which their
more seusible fellow-citizens arc working
hard to obtain. This Do-Nothing policy, it
will be observed, is iu -many respects an
adroit one. If the party of Retrenchment
and Reform should wholly or partially fail,
the Do-Notbings would exalt their horns and
say-"Wc told you so ! And when that party
is gloriously successful, the Do-Nothings will
walk smilingly to the front, claim their share
of Hie profit, and take all the offices which
an injured people will give them. Thc Do
Notbings may not mean all this; but no
other construction can bc placed upon their
conduct. It is easier to believe that men
are governed by self-interest, than that those
who see farthest on other occasions bhould
be shortest-sighted now. ?
For the masses of the people, the argu?
ment against "passive resistance," and in
favor of an energetic effort to obtain a bet?
ter government, is both short and simple.
That argument is-THE ENORMOUS INCREASE
OK TOE STATE DEBT, THE ENOKMOCS COST OP
THE STATE GOVERNMENT, AND THE ENORMOUS
TAXATION, wnicu INCREASED DEBT AND IN?
CREASED EXPENSES MAKE ABSOLUTELY NECES?
SARY. Cati -any man who looks atthe figures
Joubt that unless we have a purer and more
frugal administration the State will be hope?
1. The appropriation for thc expenses of
the State Government was $420,000 in 1SC6,
and is $720,000 in 1S70, exclusive of the in?
terest on the public debt. Besides this,
there is the county tax, amounting lo more
than $500,000, und the capitation tax
amounting to $200,000.
2. Tho salaries of the Slate officials were
$50,800 in 18G7, and ure $107,800 in LS70.
.'). The estimule of the Comptroller-Gene?
ral for the expenses of tho year lSG'.l, under
specified heads, was $777.300. But the
amount actually spent was $1,296.752. And
this docs liol include the $200,000 spent by
the Land Commission.
4. To make a long story short-the debt
ol the State, direct and indirect, which was
SIX MILLION DOLLARS ill 1868, is now FOUR?
TEEN MILLION DOLLARS.
How can any one, in the face of figures
like these, advise bis fellow-citizens to prac?
tice a masterly inactivity, and wait patiently
until some peaceful revolution shall not only
hurl Radicalism from power, but wipe out,
besides, the long roll of debt and taxation ?
The only thing which can save the State and
the people is a change of government at the
next elections. We cannot afford to wait ;
for ii the struggle were postponed two years
longer the taxation would be so enormous
that neither commerce ttor agriculture could
thrive and prosper. And then the only
"passive resistance" remaining to thc peo?
ple would be a general Exodus from a State
which was ruined, less by the act of her
enemies than by the obstinate folly of a few
of her own children.
"The party of progress" turns out to be
the party of reaction. Our government was
made, by the constitution, one of limited
powers. It was restricted by that muuicipul
and local legislation which broke the feu?
dalism of the middle ages; which established
the Italian cities, and the Swiss Republic,
and the leagues of Northern Germany; and
which liberalized and adjusted the whole po?
litical system by a lofty and just ideal. This
element of public prosperity Radicalism ig?
nores, or rather seeks to destroy.
Franco gives liberty to its couinuinoa.
Prussia to its principalities and kingdoms.
Spain and Austria seek to make the citizen
aman. But Ameiica goes hack to abso?
lutism; crushes out thc life of ?tates; makes
the citizens mere puppets; proscribes self
government as rebellion, and lauds the spo?
liation of thirty-seven million five hundred
thousand men, women and childreu by
two million five hundred thousand monopo?
lists, a3 a "protection lo industry!" While
all tho world beside is rising up to liberty,
wc are sinking down beneath thc pressure
of a consolidated despotism. Heartless in?
triguers and empty mouthers geek to perpet?
uate among us, or rallier lo renew, (hose
political sophisms which Europe casts to Hie
For our part, we think that the States are
quite as important in our system ns Hie Gen?
eral Government, Thc former made the
latter, and could do quite as well as they
fo rmerly did were the virtuous City of Wash?
ington to experience Hie fate of the Cities
of thc Plain. Nay, we even Lope they could
mariage to survive were careless Nature to
break, like a potsherd, that sleek Robe?
spierre-mould out of which she made Sumner,
or that crooked, squint-eyed John Wilkes
mould OUtjOf which Butler sloughed. Under
any circumstances politicians will grow. But
States do not take root so easily. If they
perish they may involve liberty in their over?
throw, and may require a century or two for
their're-establishment Thc obsequies of a
Congressman require only a few yards o
crape; those of a Slate demand tho tears
and perhaps tho blood of thousands.
We cannot but think that thc reception of
General Ames in Congress, as tho senator
from Mississippi, is one of thc most signifi?
cant and momentous circumstances that has
occurred in the United States since the war.
This gentleman was a citizen of Maine, but
was elected to represent Mississippi simply
because he was in the latter State at thc
time of bis election. The New York Times
admits the significance of the Congressional
action in this case, and asserts that a resi?
dence of two or three days in any Slate ia
sufficient to entitle any citizen of the United
States to office there. Under the present
regime, Horace Greeley can represent Vir?
ginia. The Union isa nation. The citizens
of any district have a relationship to all, and
can be returned to Congress from Carolina
or Oregon, just as Mr. Bright can be sent to
Parliament from Manchester or Plymouth,
from Cornwall or Yorkshire. Thus the
Union adopts a new device for dominion
not the knightly sword or spur-nat the
royal crown or sceptre-but the CARPET?
BAG. That parti-colored ensign of adven?
ture is uow thc very star of empire ! The
wooden clock, thc wooden ham, the wooden
nutmeg, were the harsh experience of the'
past; the carpel-bag is the yielding, tender,
all-absorbing prom iso of the future.
Now add to the prestige of the carpet-bag
the power of "protection." Give every
scoundrel who has "an itching palm" thc
right to dip into his neighbor's purse. Let
Lowell have a cent or two for every yard of
calico that is used by anybody in the United
States. Let Pittsburg have its additional
dollar upon every dollar's worth of iron (hat
eulers into any engine, or plough, or axe, or
anvil, or stove, or pot. Fossilize the com?
munity. Wherever you find fifteen poor
men, consolidate thom into a phosphate,
and crush them into dust, that thc fields of
one rich man may bo fertile. Forbid the
very rivers to How unless limy turn their
sandi to gold, and give their gold to Midas.
Not content with subduing the Soulh by
overpowering numbers, New England de?
mands that these grand Slates should be?
come coproliles-excrescent*! of a part that
has perished forever, yet that may bc utilized
like the bones of thc heroes of Waterloo that
now fertilize the pastures and enrich thc
cheeses of Cheshire. That such fully should
have awakened the apprehensions and sharp?
ened thc pen uf Mr. Curdozo is lamentable.
There is now little doubt that the iron
leader of the Paraguayan cause, who, by thc
sheer force of an indomitable will, kept up so
fierce and so protracted a struggle against
Brazil and her allies, is no more. The end
of Lopez seems to have been a filling close
tos most remarkable career. Ile m^t death
resolutely from a hostile lance, rather than
yield to the hated foe. So long as Lopez
lived, even lltougli a fugitive in Hie moun?
tains, and relying for sustenance on Hie In?
dian trilies. whose friendship he appears lo
have won, all the successes of Hie allies failed
to give perfect nssuranec that the struggle
might not be renewed. Tho death of Lopez
relieves the new Provisional Government,
established nt Asuncion, from it3 fears, und
enables the Allies to disband their forces,
willi the certainty that they are no longer
needed. Whatever cl imes may have been
ascribed to Hie implacable Dictator by Ins
enemies, it ainsi at least be said that Ibo
unswerving devotion of thc Paraguayan peo?
ple to Loppz himself, and to the cause for
which he fought, finds but few parallels in
history. Whatever may have been his
motives for beginning the war which bas
terminated so fatally for himself anti so dis?
astrously to Paraguay, the protracled resis?
tance which this petty and Isolated Stato
offered to the combined forces of the Argen?
tine Confederation and of thc Empire of
Brazil-taxiug the powers of both to the
utmost-must forever remain memorable in
the aun?is of South America.
