THE SIGNIFICANCE OF TUE EE
SVLT OF TUE PltEBISCTTUil.
[FROM OUR (n\fi CORRESPONDENT.]
PARIS, May 14.
Finis coroma opus. The overwhelming sue
cess o? the appeal to the people lias justified
the previsions of the Emperor. After a t wt-Ive
month of invectives, the various shades of his
Majesty's opposition have only been able to
muster one and a hali millions of votes-the
supporters oflibt'ty without revolution, seven
and a quarter. This vote is the real expres?
sion of the national will; and if the conquered
party will but consider their ways and bc
wise, relinquish the violent hate of personal
politics, give a long pull, a strong pull, and a
pull altogether, Fiance lias before- liera futuro
of glory that will put into the shade thc bril?
liant reign of Louis XIV and Napoleon I
Tlie French have ii proverb that when one has
not what they love, it is necessary to love
what ose lias"; if it were acted on, the nation
r.-ouid be indeed happy. The large class of
voters who went to the poll, showed a revi?
val of political life very commendable, and
how little influence had that fraction of the
press which preached up abstention. The
sensible portion of the Democratic*presa wipe
their swords and honorably admit a lost battle.
But the Incendiary papers congratulate them?
selves on a triumph ! " Asinus asinum fricaL
The majority consist in their opinion only ol
Bcetians. But this Mephistophelic humor may
be pardoned. Every condemned has twenty
four hours to curse his judges.
The Emperor and his ministers will not relax
in their eilorts to make France governable-to
habitu?t- thc people lo the use of liberty. The
country lias unmistakably pronounced against
barricades, and the "immortal principles, of
1789'' ure now discussed ouly over truffled tur?
keys and Madame Clicquot's-and may the lit?
tle widow's shadow never be less-champagne..
A great number of the civil servants of the
crown voted "No," but this is a chronic fashion
against every government that declines to in?
crease their salaries. The "Noes" irom the
army amounted to 4G,000; the navy nearly six
thousands lt would be strange if the incendi?
ary writings of the Opposition journals did not
find some echo in the canteens. But it must
not be concluded that the soldiers, in voting
"Nb," are partisans of the revolutionists. On
the contrary, Hie hostility expressed ls a de?
monstration against some ol' the unpopular
acts of the late .Minister of War, Marshal Niel,
whose motto was, "The army is myself." The
Emperor, on visiting the barrack, along with
the Empress, where one half of the soldiers
voted "No," was enthusiastically received; the
Imperial visitors inspected the hospital wards,
anil left 2000 francs for the braves lo drink the
Emperor's health. His Majesty's letter to the
army of Paris shows his confidence in it is un?
The large towns os usual polled dead against
the Empire, but the number ol' discontented
is less than during the general elections of
18C9. Those towns which are the centres of
special industries, however, voted tor the
government by strongly marked majorities.
Paris, too, gave gratifying proof of a re?
turn N to better counsels. Everywhere the
polling was fair and free. There were no
urns with false, bottoms, or substitutes for
ballot boxes, in the shape or a soup tureen,
or n gendarmes boot.
It would be marvellous if thc election passed
off without a demonstration. On Wednesday
evening, after the third day of agony, revolu?
tion breathed Its last sigh. But during this
time, some bayonet-wounds were inflicted, and
heads laid open with paving stoties and bottles.
The ghost of a barricade made its appearance,
amidst the jeers of the lookers-on. and as usual
the patriotic defenders bolted on the ap?
pearance of the troops, who conlliiued to
sweep the boulevards, where a crowd formed.
About four hundred arrests have been made,
but out of this number only fifty will be ar?
raigned. Doggers and knives were the princi?
pal arms found on the insurgents, who count
two deaths-and the burial ol' these saviours
of their country attracted some 1200 mourn?
ers, who made very violent speeches over
the graves. Two policemen are reported to
have died from their wounds. The Min?
ister ' of Police made an appeal to the
good* sense of the Parisians-a very un?
known element la their character-to
keep within doors. It was just the thing
wanted to retain them in the streets. To see
a revolution is such tv curious spectacle, that
the rheumatic and paralytic of several months
lying did take up their beds and walk to
view the fun. Did Hot a gentleman lately
write to the Times that, thanks to a
railway collision, he became a "perfect
cure," from rheumatism ? A great many
citizens fled to the mountains, during the ex?
citement, and those who were compelled to
remain near the housetops, provisioned their
abodes with bread and hams for three days. It
is said the chiefs ot the Left will be called upon
to resign, it is singular that the leaders of
this party, which sends them to Parliament,
are never found in the bottle's van-nor. in?
deed, do they ever call upon their constituents
to abandon street-rioting. There were several
cases of individual outrages cornmltttcd by
the disciples of liberty, equality and fraternity.
Those who were not for them were against
them. Several (ramie attempts ore made lo
seduce the soldiers to ..fi atei irize," especially
those quartered in the barracks ol Prince Bn
geue. But without success. One lieutenant,
who replied lo one of the mob thal he would
do his duty, was nearly shot dead by his ques?
tioner, and several sentries became-Hie victims
of revolutionary abduction. However, the
little game is atlast finished-the majority in?
sist on the government paying attention to
them, not to the rioters. The Legislative As?
sembly has resumed duty, and wlien the cabi?
net shall have been reconstituted, (he march
of constitutional liberty will be rapid aud un?
The fight for thc kingship of Spain is down
to come off within thc next two months.
Prim has at last found thc philosopher's stone
to solve all difficulties. The champions are '
the young Montpelier and the old Espartero.
Priui himself will be "the dark horse" in the
race. Much gossip is here going on relative
to the great dinner given by the Spanish au?
thorities here, to celebrate the triumph of the
Plebiscite; and which he came hot-haste from
Madrid to preside over. The other embassa
dors contented themselves by presenting the
congratulations of their sovereign of the Tuile?
ries. The attempt to get upa sympathetic
meeking among the Greeks in Parin to oppo.'e
the natural wrath ot John Bull for the Mara?
thon massacre, has failed-chiefly through tho
instigation ol' Russia. The latest news we
have from Athens and by telegraph express
is, that his Majesty was "out scooting yester?
day and killed two rabbiLs."'
A leading deputy, belonging lo the Irrecon?
cilables, has furnished "al! Paris" with ft good
laugh at his his odyssey daring the last few
days. He made the acquaintance of a German
.'laily,'" lively as Hebe, and who had thc blood
of the Brandenburgs in her vein--, and could
boast bv her mother's side of that of the Haps?
burg* also. For the first day's proceedings
the deputy put one hundred and fifty Napo?
leons in his pocket, for these kind of voyages
round Parn arc often more expensive than a
tour round the world. Mlle, was very weil
"?ot up," and could boast ti little of literature.
' Uer i'ounces fresh from Victorine.
From Hippolyte lier rouge aud hair:
Her poetry norn Lamartine.
Her morals from-the Lord knows where.''
She accepted, with a protest, jewelry and dia?
monds; dined at a lamons restaurant, where
truant kings and princes generally sup-for
dessert, grapes on their branches, iii 20 francs
each, and a box at thc opera at a fancy price.
One hight her cavalier desired to see her home.
She shat the door in his face, aud called him
an imbecile. A few days subsequently he was
talking with the wife of a German.ambassitdor,
when a "lady" passed by In au elegant phti ton,
and bowed to the ambassadrice, who looked
daggers "Who is that person ?" demanded
the deputy. "My waiting maid," replied the
lady,"whom I lately dismissed."
Possibly Paris may attribute its recent adhe?
sion to the cause ol order to asparagus. There
is no vegetable so highly prized, by high and
low, as this succulent esculent. It is now pur?
chasable by the most moderate purse, and it is
held to be very efficacious as a purifier of the
blood. A good dish of it can be had for two
francs, and tor six sous ererv prol?taire can
taste it. The "lower orders" eat it in a mix?
ture ol oil and vinegar-thc "upper" with a
white sauce. Fontenelleorice Invited Laharpc
to dine with him, and announced asparagus as
one of tlie good things. Laharpe inquired I
with what sauce, "White," replied FonU'ttcUe,
Lahor pe preferred oil arni vinegar, and it was
arranged, halt the bundle was to be served to
suit each. Before dinner hour, the news ar?
rived that Laharpe was dead, and Fontenelle
Immediately ran lo the cook and told thc cook
io serve ali foe asparagus with while sane?;.
For the Paris market, the asparagus is raised
in the district of Aigentenil-outside the city
a million bundles, containing twenty branches
each, being sold during the season." The first
bolte is presented to the Emperor. Although
this plant was known to the (?auls, who moist?
ened their parched throats with it, it was only
in 1800 that its cultivation became a science.
L'herault affectionately alindes to Itv as Isaac
Wallon did to his bait-it is requisite to love
the plant as a father his children-ns a doctor

THE El EST NEURO CADET.
His Arrival and Reception at West
Point-Consternation Among tile Cau?
casians- A Council of War-How the
Officer* Hope to Get Kid of Catlee.
A West Point correspondent ol' the Kew
York Sun, writing on the 25th ultimo, says:
West Point and the entire National Acade?
my were almost breathless with excitement
yesterday. The son of a colored American
citizen arrived here in his new role ot military
cadet. There had been rumors that negro
boys had been appointed to llio National Acad?
emy, but tile ubsoliite arrival of an African,
commission in hand, is too much for West
Point human nalino to endure. Aristocrate
professors and jaunty cadets are speechless.'
Cadet Masler Charles Howard (colored)
comes from Hie Slate of Mississippi. Iiis ap?
pointment is from tlie Secretary ol' War, anti
was recommend-*'! by the lion. Legrand W.
Perce, newly elected member from, thc lifth
district. His pure African descent is unmis?
takably manifested in his clear black com?
plexion, largely white eyes and closely crimped
hair. His personal appearance ls by no means
unprepossessing. In height he is about live
feet four inches; his figure is well rounded,
and his carriage not at all ungraceful. His
countenance has a pleasant, shrewd and reso?
lute expression. His acceut smacks decidedly
ot the plantation. ''What you g'win to do wid
dat bag, sali ?" and "You dun let dat drap,"
was his exclamation to a hotel porter who ac
cidentlytook up his carpet-bug. His nose is
slightly retrouss? and his face is shiny willi
healtb. It ls settled that he cannot be rejected
physically by the medical board.
It is quite evident, that he is aware of the
peculiar position In which he ls placed, and
that although sensitive, he is not embarrass?
ed nor discouraged. His appearance as he
wandered a'.-nit the Plains, carrying io his
hand an immense carpet-bag, and iuqniring
the direction to the commandant's ollice, was
somewhat amusing. He was politely inlorm?
ed that he was in advance ol'the appointed
time, and that new cadets could not be exam?
ined until alter the 25th. Ile then endeavored
to procure board, but everywhere he applied
was Informed that lhere were no accommoda?
tions left, whereupon he proceeded lo the Vil?
lage of Highland Fulls, two miles below, and
applied at Cozzens" Hotel. Dinner and supper
were furnished him there, but all the rooms
were ''engaged;*' so he had recourse to a col?
ored family who live near by, and who are now
entertaining him. He appears very quiet, bul
apparently determined to "push things"
resolutely. His advent is the sensation
of the season. The cadets, especially, are
nota lillie exercised In mind over Hie mat?
ter, and it ls a theme of not a lillie contentious
argument. Even the oflicers, while discard?
ing all political bias in thc limiter, and aller
having lb;ight for thc colored race, bulli at Hie
polls and oh the battle-field, while feeling kind?
ly toward him, speak very donbllinly on thc
expediency ol"this venture. They regard il as
a more decided advance of the colored niau
into social circles than even the ?l?vation of
Senator Bevels io Congressional rank. The
position of Ute new cadet, If accepted and re?
tained, must grow more and more embarrass?
ing from his isolation and the peculiar novelty
of his social connections. No doubt but this
recruit will have a thorough initiatory "devil?
ment''from the cadels. lo sustain which will
test his fortitude. Otherwise be will be treated,
by both officers and cadets, with courtesy rod
kindness, their sense of honor bel?g too high
to permit any other course.
One thing is certain, the black cadet Is here.
Ile is undoubtedly physically qualified. He
must now drill with the while cadets until the
examination on the 24ih of .July. Then he will
fail .In mental examination, and go back to
Mississippi. This is the program me. for the
examining officers have power to reject any
applicant. General Schriver and Colonel Black
are opposed to the African, and while they are
at the head of Hie National Academy Hie black
boy will remain on the plantation. Judge
H?ge. M. C.. from Columbia, is to appoint a
negro, and has already signed a paper of re?
commendation. Genera! Butler's colored youth
was too young, and the general knew it. He
only appointed him for political purposes. But
in the light of the Fifteenth amendment, what
shail we do willi the African in our national
and naval acad?mies hs a grave question for
the imregenerated mind.

Further Particular* of thc Fenian
Movements on the Ii o rd cr.
All is quiet on l!ie Canadian line. The excite?
ment has ceased, but sufficient force has been
distributed on both sides of the frontier by ilie
Dominion and Unitgt} .'.tates authorities, re?
spectively, lo prevent trouble from maraud?
ing bands unable to return home.
OuDENSBfnc. May 20.
Generals Meade. McDowell and Van Vliet
arrived here this afternoon. They regari I the
Fenian movement as ended, and are confident
there will be no more trouble. The leaders
are in the hands of the civil authorities. Gen?
eral Meade thinks the railroad companies
should transport the 1000 or l?(?i Fenians at
.Malone home, as they look full fare from them
coming. The report that General Foster, at
St. Albans, had demanded the return of pieces
ol'artillery; token hythe Canadians from thc
Amcricarisside. is untrue. A Canadian who
was in Hie fight near St. Albans states that
there were just thirty-six Canadians engaged.
Seven carloads of Fenians left St. Albans for
home Saturday night.
Til? First Battle-A Canadian Account.
A special dispatch from Frellghsburg, May
25. to the Toronto Leader, says:
The volunteers have had their first skirmish
willi the Fenians. The latter mustered belora
noon about three hundred strong, just oppo?
site the line, two miles lrom Cook's corner of
the road leading from thc latter place to
Franklin Centre, and at the old Fenian camp?
The United States marshal crossed to the
Canadian side and informed Colonel Smith
that lie had no troops to prevent thc Fenians
In halt an hour afterward the Fenians open?
ed fire upon the Sixtieth Battalion of Volun?
teers under Colonel Chamberlln. and the Inde?
pendent Corps tinder Captain Westover. The
volunteers returned the fire with spirit. The
Fenians were sheltered by a, group of houses
on the boundary line, but they left their cover
and a company dashed across the line into
Canada, and the next minute a volunteer bullet
laid ii dead Fenian across the road thirtv yards
lrom the line. The skirmishing and firing was
continued at irregular intervals for hau an
hour, when Captain Gascoigne, who had at the
beginning of the firing been dispatched lo
Stenbridge village for assistance, arrived with
the Victorias in double team wagons, followed
by Cuplain Muir's troop of cavalry. The caval?
ry dismounted On a hill overlooking the Feni?
ans, and the Victorias defiled and opened a
skirmishing fire from among the rocks. The
Fenians retired under cover at 2 P. M., but
shortly alterward appeared again, and a hot
fire was kent up for some time. Nothing could
exceed the" admirable manner in which the
troops behaved; they exhibited the utmost
coolness and steadiness, facing the galling dre
like veterans. " .
? THE CHARGE.
Apparently ! ired of firing, and ?laving no
ammunition, the Fenians advanced within one
hundred yards of osr lines. They were heavi?
ly-built, rough-looking fellows, badly uni?
formed, and"without discipline. No sooner
was it ascertained through the dense smoke
thal (hey were bent on attacking us. than the
word "charge was given, and our gallant
force advanced with'the bayonet." The Fe?
nians halted and waited for the onslaught.
"Reserve your lire and give them the British
bayonet,'1 was the command, and on dashed the
volunteers In double quick time, cheering
lustily, amid cries of "No quarter." In a few
seconds they were almost breast to breast with
the enemy, who began to waver, although their
officers dill their utmost to keep them iii
line. .Aller a few feeble shouts ol' "Flin go
Bragh," and "Remember our martyred broth?
ers.71 which appeared to be their chief battle
cry, they slowly turned tall and finally took to
their heels, and made for the American fron?
tier willi all possible dispatch, leaving arms,
ammunition, overcoats, ami a considerable
number of whiskey flasks on the Held. Colonel
Chainberlin dashed up to the head or Iiis
column, and rising in his stirrups, yelled
"Give the cowards a volley!" an order which
was immediately complied with, seven or
eight Fenians falling, among them a youth, of
seventeen, gracefully attired in greeu. and
holding a lieutenant's commission". Captain
came whirling past at a terrible speed, willi
loud cheering, which was taken up by the
whole force and echoed by the spectators on
the hill. Sweeping onward. Captain Muir and
his noble fellows overtook a lew Fenian strag?
glers, who bitterly implored mercy. One
trooper, a big, burly fellow, seized a wretch by
the collar, lilted him clean off the ground, anil
dashed him senseless to the earth, to the great
amusement of his comrades and to the infinite
disgust o? the viciiin. who was pounced upon
by an infantry man and conducted to the ivar.
When the main body of the Fenians crossed
Hu* line. Captain Muir ai once called oil' his
men, and took up a position to Hie ri^ht of the
Sixtieth. The Victorias were rushing up, but
the enemy was out ol' sight and safely es
conced on lite Yankee side before they had the
chance of firing a shot. The whole force then
paraded, when ii was found that not a man was
hurt, although several had most extraordinary
escapes. Tue greatest exultation prevailed,
and everybody was disgusted ut the cowardly
conduct of '.h'.* foe.
The Fenians, about live P. M.. reappeared
near the huge rock on the American glue, or?-.
p?sito the hill, bu! were in no great humor for
lighting, and a few well-directed shots sent
them to their cover. The dead and wounded
Fenians. Io the number ol twelve, were then
cared for by Colonel (?minberiin. The boy
officer who was wounded in the second attack
stated thal Hie Fenian force amounted io three
hundred and seventy-live, commanded by ten
officers; that O'Neil was afraid lo head the at?
tack himself, giving as an excuse thal !.<. was
engaged ia * arranging "strategic move?
Colonel Chamberlin's force consisted of fifty
men of his own battalion, and forty-six civ?

How the Radical* in Washington Re?
ceived the It< suit of tile Kew York
I). P. writes from Washington to *.he Cin?
cinnati Commercial :
There is no denial of the fact that the late
election in >cw York has hail a somewhat du
pressing effect u|?on the government people
here, who, up io that ?.vent, counted their
two-tbirds majority i:i Congress, and swung
on as ii lhere were- no constituencies taking
nole of their shortcoming*. Th u tho City of
New York, tinder Hie corrupt control of the
mos', infamous organization known to political
humanity, should'exhibit a huge ninjoritvin
favor of the Democracy, was expected. But
Hie result In Hie rural districts ?ills our friends
willi dismay, li is the handwriting on Hie
iva!!, and means deal h.
Aiiti yet, judging from tho talk ol Republi?
can officials heretofore, one would mutier Hint
the defeat of the Republicans iii a triumph of
Hie De in av racy, was nu even! tn be expected,
and. Whether pleasant or ?io:, one to ye re?
garded with pliilosopl ical indifference. Bu*
death, however lotiir nnlicipnied. cannot be
made familiar. We look the inevitable calm?
ly in the face until Hie face assumes thal form,
and then ive shrink in dismay. I take my
meals at Wcicker's, where quite a number of
Congressmen feed, and Hie morning Hie news
reached us, and each mun opened his morn
ingjonrnal lo read the news, a dead silence,
a deep gloom fell upon tho room, so marked
thal a Stranger would ??ave taken us for a col?
lection of u nilen akers, refreshing ourselves
upon the cold baked meats ol a funeral.
The mass of (ht (nieces and swindlers that
have crowded upon the Republican craft, until
ii is fairly swamped, for '.he first time'bettin to
realize that their days are numbered-their
doom seato/. What with this iniquitous pro?
tective tariff thal grinds down the multitude
that a few may prosper; what with the hard
times and the thousand and one gigantic legis- '?
lative swindles fer a few monopolists, tho peo?
ple sicken and cry out for a change.
Old Pig-iron says, in the deepest touo of a
voice that sounds like echoes from a rotten
collin : "The Demo-cratic partee will never
consent, sir, lo a re-duc-tion of the tariff. The
leaders may advocate such a ru-io-oiis po!-i-c.v
when out o':' pow-er, but when in powi-r. s-'.-r,
they dare uot.v
Poor devil. I think I PCP him begging ft pro?
tective tarin' from the Democracy. The in?
stincts ol'that celebrated Organization are not
so keenAnd perfect; as they once were, but
enough are left to control the party on that
subject, and indeed, all others of ti financial
sort. A Democrat is a man who hates taxa?
tion. The support of a government or anv
sort is very offensive to bim. and the leaders
are popular so long as they cater 'o this
healthy prejudice. Jack Cade's financial no?
tions, as portrayed by Shakspeare, are pecu?
liarly Democralic. I see Jack in Con?
gress now, returned by a constituency
in the full exercise of Democralic in?
terests in this direction. The Hon. Wm.
Mungen ls a true type of the Dem?
ocracy. He ls their Jack Cade to-day,
and his idea of a tlosmial policy is to
wipe out old scores and to^tgin again. This
sort will have thc nt^vt House of Representa?
tives, and not the learned Brooks and volatile
Cox, who representithe Democratic bondhold?
ers. Wait until Brick Pomerov ,fc Co. put in
an appearance, and then let Kelley plead for a
protective taritf. it will be good tun to note
how such financiers will receive and act upon
such propositions. And if will be. further on,
great comfort lo see how the people wiil rally
around, and sustain these gentlemen in their
short cul to prosperity. ? think I hear Brick
on the lloor promulgating his idea of a finan?
cial treatment ol'the national debi.

Some Comments of a Northern Radical
Paper on Men and Thing* in South
Thc New York Sun is lately paying a good
deal of aitention to the course of men and
politics in South Carolina. We copy some
random paragraphs from its lively columns :
HAItl) OX MASSACHUSETTS.
But a short time ago Mr. Dunn^the inde?
pendent candidate for Congress in the First
Congressional District of South Carolina, spoke
in Florence. He said that Whittemore was a
thJef. having pilfered several thousand dollars
from Mr. Shaw, a merchant in Boston. He
supported this assertion with authenticated
letters and affidavits. When he had concluded,
Mr. Flood, colored, the postmaster ol Flor?
ence, mounted the rostrum and said : "I do
not question that Whittemore may be what
Mr. Dunn says he Is: but I must Inquire, mav
not Mr. Dunn, who is also from Massachusetts',
be also a thief?" It seems to us that this is
rather hard on Massachusetts.
THE RULE OF THE I?SG.
On the urgent solicitation of a large number
of white people who reside in Darlington Dis?
trict. S. C., Captain Lloyd, a Southerner, who
is a inan of fine education and refinement, was
appointed a magistrate. A case came before
him that under the law compelled him to issue
an order restraining two colored tenants from
unlawfully holding over on some property
which tiley had hired. Tue disreputable po?
litical ring which exists in Columbia had
Captain Lloyd summarily removed from ollice
by authority of Governor Scott. That Lloyd
did only what was right, however, ls continued
by one of the higher courts of the State having
decided that the"tenants must be ejected.
HOW WHITTEMORE CONDUCTS THE CANVASS.
Tlie disreputable Wlilttemore is very busy
visiting the negroes in their cabins, eating and
drinking with'them, and otherwise success?
fully conducting the political campaign, which
will terminate probably with his re-election to
Congress. Mrs. Whittemore ls also active.
Standing and campaigning for her husband on
the plat form.of the railroad station lu Darling?
ton, she kisses the negro wenches whom she
meets there, and the dramatic effect is power?
ful. The wenches are very grateful, and quick?
ly balance the condescension of Mrs. Whitlc
moiv by reciprocating the favor in kind. Tills
lip service also helps Mrs. Whiitemore's school
along, where she generously teaches the young
negroes for twenty-live cen?-; a head per month.
The pupils ure vei-y numerous, ?ind the Income
wlilch she accumulates is highly advantageous
to herself and husband.
THE BEST OK TUE BUNCH.
Massachusetts sent at least one man of per?
sonal good character to South Carolina. We
mean Mr. Sawyer, now a United Slates sena?
tor from that State. He graduated at Harvard
College, had charge of a public school in Bos?
ton, was induced to take charge of the normal
schooi of South Carolina, remained In that
State during the greater part of the war, or
so long as his salary supported him, was
treated with great respect by the South Caro?
linians, came North, a^aln went to Charleston,
got the position of collector of internal reve?
nue in that district, and performed the duties
ol" the office with great ability and in the best,
possible spirit ol' kindness toward the people.
When the nominations were made lor United
Stales senator, one of his opponents was
Mackey, who claimed to be a worthy Republi?
can, and another was the Hon. James B.
Campbell. Mr. Sawyer wits elected by Camp?
bell's friends joining their votes with those
wiio were Sawyer's supporters.
SCOTT IS U.iilliUllU.
The Governor Visits Prank Arnim
Moses in the Parly-.V .Jolly Radical
Hie Augusta Chronicle ol Tuesday says :
Governor Robert K. Scott, the ohio carpet?
bagger who rule- and rllles the people ol'
South Carolina, arrived itt Hamburg yesterday
afternoon from Columbia, The exponent of
the higher law. the Winchester rille, came from
Columbia on the four o'clock train for tim pur?
pose of paying a visit to Frank Arnim, tho State
senator from Edgelleld County, and an ardent
loyalist, and attending a party given b" the
latter last evening. Il seems that although
Arnim has only been assisting in running the
government machine for a comparatively
short time, he ha? experienced the same for?
tune os the rest of the band Of loyal banditti,
ami has made money enough lo sport linc
clot iles and horses, and to build a new house.
The mansion having been recently finished,
he inaugurated its opening by a grand house
wanning last night, to which he invited
the Governor and oilier notabj.es from the
State capital. Accompanying his Excellency
was the notorious renegade and Speaker of the
House of Representatives. Franklin J. Moses,
ot" Sumter, the ex-secessionist and lire-eater,
Of Fort Sumter memory. Several members
of Scott's suite, and officials of a lesser light,
alvo came over on the train. The party was
met at the cal's by a band ol music and was
received with tlie usual quantity of tooting
and other demonstrations of delight by tho
enthusiastic scalawags and negroes ol' Ham?
burg. We presume that the party was treated
very hospitably last, night, and wen.' offered
every luxury "that the market could afford"
or tlie taxpayers' money purchase.
