for $100, bearing the signature of Hiram
Ward, payable to said Slmonds at any bank In
Charleston. The order was endorsed "A. J.

that the whole thing was genuine. On pre?
senting the order at several banks yesterday
morning be was told that such a person as

[Special to the New York Tribune.]
LONDON, July 26-1 A. M.
English feeling has been profoundly moved
by the publication this morning in the Times
ol the proposed treaty between France and
Prussia The grave urgency with which Dis?
raeli In the House this afternoon questioned
the government justly reflected the general
emotion. Conversation among the members
turned on no other topic. Mr. Gladstone's re?
ply, while declining absolutely to commit the
government to any opinion or declaration
whatever, betrayed In manner mere than in
words an unmistakable apprehension that the
document might prove authentic. His answer
was given with pale face and hesitating lips.
When he sat down the House felt that Eng?
land's relation with the continental trouble
had grown suddenly close if not alarming. To
the mention of Belgium the House responded
with an unwonted thrill of sympathy, and a
clear recognition of England's obligations to
It ls understood that immediate communi?
cations were made by the government to Its
agents at Berlin and Paris, and that the
French Government will have an Instant op?
portunity to admit or deny its responsibility
for the alleged treaty. It is believed here that
If genuine its proposals are French, while its
rej'BCtlou is due to Prussia.
The copy of the Times ls thought to have
been supplied from Berlin. It ls certain that
the Times would not have published it unless
on evidence deemed conclusive. It was said
privately this afternoon In the House that the
copy was originally offered to Earl Granville,
but that he refused lt, the English Government
preferring its suppression. There ls supposed
to be an allusion to the same subject In
Mr. Card well's answer to a-question in the
House about breech-loaders, saying that great
Importance was attached to the best guns
being Immediately supplied to all the troops.
The Dally News, which has brilliantly led the
the opinion of England on war questions, will
Bay in the morning:
lc ls Impossible not to admit that the gravity
of the present European crisis has tor al' neu?
tra nations been Immensely increased by the
publication of tho proposed treaty. It com?
pletely expresses what everybody believes to
be the favorite policy and cherished design of
of the French Emperor. It is also a secret
treaty against England in Its offer of a league
offensive and defensive. As to Its genuine?
ness, the public may be asked to suspend their
Judgment, since Mr. Gladstone and Earl Gran?
ville say that the two governments concerned
will be compelled to speak. Supposing that
lt was really proposed by France to Prus?
sia, our imperial friend and ally is pre?
sented in an aspect not calculated to wir
hock English sympathy with his course.
Napoleon was ready not only to throw
over our alliance for a better one,' but to break
lt any moment by a military advance into Bel?
gium, not only In direct Infraction of our
friendship, but in defiance of our power. It is
difficult to believe there was so much bad faith.
Did Prussia also listen to such a proposal ?
There is a certain insolence of tone toward
Prussia in the document, suggesting that li
sent it was a kind of ultimatum. No real in?
ducement was held out to Prussia Meantime
the whole political Interest of the moment is
concentrated on this publication. We should
be glad to have the completest assurance
that no such proposal was known to either
government. Public opinion In this country
Es already sufficiently weighty in Prussia's fa?
vor, but this treaty would moke our neutrality
difficult If not impossible."

The Journal Officiel this morning says that

Shameful .nal treatment or Laborers.
[From the Augusta Constitutionalist, -July 27.]
Yesterday a large number of ha o da recently
employed on the Angosta division of the Port
Royal "lt i ?lroad, having ceased work, reached
this city, and were congi egat ed around the
office of Messrs. George JD. Chapmau A Co.,
contractors, on Ellis street, clamorous for the
payment of the wages due them for o je or two
months' labor, wbicb, however, they failed to
tret. The condition of tuese laborers, as they
represent, and as their appearance indicates,
truly appeals to the sympathy of the com?
munity. Many of them are ia a strange oity,
without money and without food, their physi?
cal powers m a measure exhausted by the
heavy labor tn which they have been engaged
during the recent heated term. One of these
unfortunate men, doubtless under the com?
bined effects of a wart of food and the despair
produced by tbe condition in which he found
himself, sank down upon the pavement near
the contractors' office, from which position he
was taken by a carnage kindly fdrnished by
Alderman Pouroelle, and conveyed to the City
Hospital for treatment. Application was also
made in the cause of others, not quite reduced
to toe same extremity aa that of the man
above referred to, bat in a situation from which
only inhumanity could turn withoutsvmpathy.
From the muttering of the laborers, black
and white, for the payment of their hard
earned claims, and their seemingly exoited
gestures as they were crouped contiguous to
the office of the contractors, apprehensions
were aroused tbat the cry ot ."bread or blood"
might be raised against the contractors. In?
formed of the state of affura, as a measure of
precaution, Chief of Police Christian and
Lieutenant King visited the vicinity twice or
thee times daring the day and conferred with
the seemra* leaders among tbe laborers, who
pledged rheir exertions against a row in the
otty. The laborers acquiesced in preserving
the peace and good order of the city, and for
hungry men they certainly behaved well, in
view of the faot that they were justly i o censed
by a failure to receive the money for which
they had labored so hard.
Tbe laborers bring intelligence that the
nandi on this end of the road f jr at least a
distance of twenty-one miles from tho etty,
to the number of about two or three hundred,
have ceased wont, in consequence of rations
and pay giving out, and are now straggling as
beat they can to differ en; points ia quest of j
fqod and labor, the larger number moving to- '
wards this city.
[From the Augusta Chronicle.].
Mr. Chapman, we understand, denies that
he owes tbe men any money, and claims that
Schaub A-Lawton ?re their debtors. There
cav i>9 no doubt that these laborers have been
foattod very badly. Brought to the line of the
!'ort Royal Railroad from distant parts of the
country, they have labored for their employers
and yoi received nothing for their labor. They
have been defrauded of their time and wort,
and then turned adrift to shift for themselves.
Certainly tberejhas been gross mismanage men t
-to call it by no harsher term-of the affairs of
tho Port Boyal Railroad Company, and the
drat year's operations have been anything but
creditable to the corporation. Tbe men who
have had ob&rge of the work are George I).
Chapman & Co., and it is these parties whom
the destitute laborers held responsible for the
shameful manner in which they have been
treated, and tbe pitiable condition to which
thev have been reduced. With Ute quarrels
and law snits between Mr. Chapman and other
parties these poor workmen have had and can
have nothing to do They claim that they
were employed by Chapman or his agents,
that they have labored faithfully for Chapman
and looked to him tor their pay, and yet whon
they did not receive their money and carno to
thia city to demand it, they have had the door
.shat in their faces, and are left to sit down in
their raga aDd.attera apon the carbston?, and.
while a Joly san pours its barning beams upon
their heads, to reflect upon the unreliability of
"large Northern capitalists" who come South
for the sole purpose of ' developing oar re?
sources and banding up the country."
It was stated on yesterday that Mr. H. H.
Boody, the treasurer of the corporation, we
believe, wonld reach the city on l-"t night.
We hope if he bas come be will see to it that
the first thing he does is to have tbe unfortu?
nate workmen paid the money which their
labor has earned.

pLE.-The vital and the muscular systems are
entirely die tin cc rr om each other. A man may
have the brawn or a Herc?lea, but u* he ls deflctent
m vital energy he will not mar as wen, or last as
long, or be aa healthy and happy while he does
last, as the man of ordinary or even slender
build, who possesses a larger share of this ani?
mating principle. One of the greatest recommen?
dations of that pure vegetable lnvlgorant, HOS
TETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS, LS that it in?
creases the vital force of the system. No medi?
cine can double the volume of a man's muscle or
thicken and vulcanize his thews and sinews; but j
Hoatetter's Bitters has an effect much more im?
portant. Its use promotes constitutional vigor.
It reinforces the life-power, of which bone and
sinew and muscle are merely the Instru?
ments, holding the same relation to lt that ma?
chinery does to steam. Let the slight and appa?
rently fragile take heart; they may have more
stamina, though far less physical strength,-than
the broad-shouldered athletes they regard with
envy. To restore, to sustain, te Increase this
s tam in al principle, which, when in full supply,
ls the source of health and the beat guarantee or
longevity, ls a special property of the famous re?
storative. It ls not only a specific for dyspepsia,
biliousness, Intermittent fevers, constipation, Ac,
and a preventive of all diseases of a malarious
character, but the best of all medicines for
strengthening the constitution and awakening
the powers of natnre from whatever canse they
may have become lethargic._j nly 29-6 n&c
